The Construction Law unit, provided by Open Universities Australia and Curtin University, provides a comprehensive insight into the laws that govern construction and building projects. In particular, you will learn about the structure of laws in the Australian legal system with reference to the construction industry.
On completion of the unit, you will be confident in applying concepts from the law of torts and the law of contract, to everyday case studies of common legal problems in the construction industry. These fundamental topics are important to the understanding of how the legal system works, and will give you a strong foundation on which to build.
