Changes to the work on construction projects are a common cause of dispute. Such variations lead to thousands of claims in the UK every year and many more internationally. Liability for variations is not only relevant to claims for sums due for extra work but this is also an important underlying factor in many other construction disputes, such as delay, disruption, defects and project termination. This is the first book to deal exclusively with variations in construction contracts and provide the detailed and comprehensive coverage that it demands. Construction Contract Variations analyses the issues that arise in determining whether certain work is a variation, the contractor’s obligation to undertake such work as well as its right to be paid. It deals with the employer’s power to vary and the extent of its duties to approve changes. The book also analyses the role of the consultant in the process and the valuation of variations. It reviews these topics by reference to a range of construction contracts. This is an essential guide for practitioners and industry professionals who advise on these issues and have a role in managing, directing and compensating change. Participants in the construction industry will find this book an invaluable guide, as will specialists and students of construction law, project management and quantity surveying.

Twenty years ago, there were 2500 lawyers in China, basically no legal system, and law schools and law libraries had either been closed or destroyed. It was one of the poorest countries in the world with an adult literacy rate of one-third. Today, illiteracy has dropped to below 10 per cent, consumption has more than doubled, and China has exploded as a major economic force in the global community, with the USA alone investing billions of dollars, aside from pursuing an increasing number of untapped markets. Now with more than 100,000 lawyers and mandated Rule of Law, China has enacted a multitude of new laws, regulations, and orders that must be understood if one wants to do any kind of foreign investment or trade in that country. This work is a guide to the complex laws of China. It opens with a survey of the historical development of China's contemporary legal system, and provides a summary of Chinese legislative and regulatory institutions and their functions. It also gives an overview of the judiciary and the many forces affecting China's evolving legal system.
