Postgraduate Diploma International Construction Law

Course Description


The construction industry is notorious for its high incidence of conflict and the resulting disputes are a drain on the industry's profitability and reputation. PGDips International Construction Law course provides you with the skills necessary to identify and address legal issues related to construction projects as well as tackling disputes should they arise. It seeks to extend and develop your understanding of the law relating to the core aspects of international construction practice, dispute settlement, procurement and sustainability.

The PGDips International Construction Law course aims to provide opportunities for you to gain an understanding of global issues affecting construction law and practice and to gain knowledge, understanding and the requisite skills in preparation for employment in international construction legal practice and commercial organisations both in the UK and abroad.

This is a unique distance learning course aimed at a high level which will allow you to develop specialist knowledge in particular areas of construction law relevant to your employer or your business. Although the course involves the academic study of construction law, it also features a very important practical dimension as evidenced by case studies in a number of the module.

A number of high profile construction law practitioners input to the course. It is therefore suitable for practising lawyers in the built environment generally. The course will also be suitable for construction industry professionals, and for those who are responsible for representing the interests of the various stakeholders in the industry.
