The unit examines complex construction project contracts from a legal risk management framework in relation to the implications for scope, quality, cost and time. Theory and practice of project conflict management, dispute avoidance and dispute resolution are investigated through precedence.  Students will explore the remedies available for the various conflict pathways of identification, early intervention, claim, negotiation, arbitration and litigation. A holistic approach to the concept of conflict will be applied through a critique of the causes of disputes mapped against the underlying risk allocation and management strategies on projects impacted by legal, business and informational contexts. Conditions of contract and cost and financial procedures are studied through case studies. The unit will allow students to evaluate, develop and apply a legal risk management approach through an examination of project disputes.
