Construction Law (3rd edition) by Julian Bailey will be published in three volumes by London Publishing Partnership in March 2020. This third edition of Bailey’s seminal work is now accessibly priced at £125, around 75% cheaper than the second edition. (The 10% pre-publication discount is no longer available, although the book can still be purchased elsewhere on our website: here.)

Now in its third edition, this is the definitive work of reference for construction law practitioners internationally. Across three volumes it provides the most comprehensive treatment of the major issues arising out of construction and engineering projects, with extensive references to case law, statutes and regulations, standard forms of contract and legal commentary. The book in its new, updated form is indispensable for law practitioners and is now accessibly priced for the postgraduate student market.


Praise for previous editions

“This is no ordinary or pedestrian book on ‘building contract law’. It is a tour de force.”

Sir Rupert Jackson


A “seminal” and “definitive” work.

His Honour Humphrey LLoyd QC, International Construction Law Review


“Now in its second edition – eagerly anticipated by the legal profession internationally – Construction Law is firmly established as a classic. Indeed, it is one of the finest works in any branch of English or Australian commercial law published in the past half century. Construction Law is a magisterial work. It is impossible to praise it too highly. The author has distilled principles from an enormous body of case law…and covered the breadth of construction law with great skill and clarity. One can only marvel at the author’s extraordinary achievement.”

Michael Christie SC, Building and Construction Law Journal


“The second edition of Construction Law stands upon the shoulders of the giant achievement that was the first, and encourages us to look forward to many further editions which will continue to illuminate our fascinating yet complex area of law. The international construction law community is once more in Julian Bailey’s debt.”

Dr Matthew Bell, Construction Law International


“Bailey has once again created a practical epic, establishing himself as a virtuoso of construction law on an international scale. The second edition, like the first, is a friend to construction law, written as a guide to the field’s ins-and-outs and a tool to navigate its halls. I have full confidence in recommending this text to any practitioner or student in need of a comprehensive and authoritative collection of all things construction related.”

— Professor Doug S Jones AO, International Construction Law Review


“The writing is efficient and pellucid… Every section covers its scope with the right amount of detail, neither leaving the reader hungry for more, nor sedated by incursions into unnecessary detail.”

— Stephen A. Hess, Construction Lawyer


“Outstanding… Wherever one looks, the completeness of coverage and case citation stands out as does the clarity of the exposition. Practitioners need this… This is a true practitioner’s work in an area where much law is made and practised here and overseas.”

— Richard Wilmot-Smith QCLaw Quarterly Review
