Book on Construction Law

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am looking for individuals who might be interested in reviewing a book on Construction Law for Engineers, Architects, and Project Managers.
There are 22 chapters - I anticipate people who are interested might want to review 2 or 3 that cover topics they are interested in.  I am interested in people with all levels of engineering and legal knowing - no prior experience needed, just a willingness to read and comment.
I have included the Chapter Titles below.  Those who are interested should e-mail me off-list and I will send a more complete Table of Contents so you can get an idea of what a particular chapter covers.  All but Chapter 1 are ready to be reviewed.
The book may be published by ASCE, but they have been real slow in their responses so far, so I might look into other options.
For those not interested in reviewing, I would also be interested in hearing what legal topics you think A/Es and CMs should know about.  You can e-mail these ideas on or off-list as you think appropriate.
