Abstract

Over the past two decades, the rise of specialist practice in the area of construction law has led to – and been fostered by – a proliferation in construction law teaching. This article examines this trend, offering observations about what makes for “best practice” in teaching students across construction-related disciplines – lawyers, construction professionals, undergraduates and graduates – and how the academy can assist in building bridges between those disciplines.

Keywords: Building, construction law, legal education
