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. 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. The Journal is also of use and interest to other construction professionals and academics with an interest in construction law.
