Journal of the Canadian College of Construction Lawyers 2021

Availability: In Stock

Get convenient access to expert insight on current hot topics and legal issues in the construction industry. The Journal of the Canadian College of Construction Lawyers includes insightful articles covering a variety of topics impacting jurisdictions across Canada, written by leading practitioners. The Canadian College of Construction Lawyers, established in 1998, is comprised of lawyers from across Canada distinguished in the practice of construction law. While construction law is recognized as a specialized practice area, it in fact overlaps several other subject areas, some of which are, in themselves, distinct practice areas, such as contract law, tort law, surety law, builders liens and insurance law. In addition, because alternative dispute resolution (primarily mediation and arbitration) has become so widely used in resolving construction disputes, law and practice relating to mediation and arbitration have become more frequent subjects of articles in the Journal. One of the core values of the College is to maintain professional excellence in the study and practice of construction law. For that reason, this Journal is dedicated to publishing scholarly articles of interest to construction lawyers. We have found that the Journal is also of use and interest to other construction professionals and academics with an interest in construction law.

What's New in the 2021 Edition

The scope of topics included in the nine articles contained in this issue of the Journal address some recently arising issues and recurring problems in construction cases, including:

- The Duty of Consultation

- Alliance Contracting

- "Pay-when-paid" Clauses

- Conflicts between Construction Lien statutes and the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act

- Termination of the Construction Contract before completion

- Limitation of Liability Clauses in Multi-party Construction Disputes

- The Evolution of Holdback Provisions

- Corporate Compliance programs
