Intensely practical and clearly written, 'Law in Practice' is the RIBA's jargon-free, professional guide to the law as it relates to a construction project. This second edition is fully up-to-date with all recent changes in legislation and the new RIBA Plan of Work 2013. Functioning both as a quick reference as well as an intelligent guide to complex issues, it gives both students and practicing architects alike the tools to work through and argue issues of construction law for themselves, shedding light on potential pitfalls and pointing out wherever specialist advice is needed.
