Construction Contract Law: A Beginner’s Guide

Thursday, 7 September 2017

18-22 Hill Street, Cathedral Quarter, Belfast BT1 2LA

15:00 - 17:00


In the construction industry we sign contracts daily; but are you really sure what you are signing?  Construction contract law has many pitfalls and ignorance is bliss, until it all goes wrong.

This seminar serves as a beginner’s guide to give you a crash course of construction contract law and will cover topics including:


Entering into a construction contract

Do I need to sign the dotted line?

Working under Letters of Intent

Performance and conduct when getting paid

What have I signed up to?

Implied terms – the silent killers

What was said vs what was written down

What happens when it all goes wrong?

Won’t pay vs Can’t pay and my rights

The Act vs the Contract


For those of you who want to develop your knowledge in this field have a look at our Law and Contract Management Course due to commence at the end of September 2017.  This is a more intensive 25 week course designed to equip you with a comprehensive understanding of Contract Law, the Law of Tort and the NEC3 / 4 ECC contract.
