The seventh edition of Contracts and the Legal Environment for Engineers and Architects has been written for students in the engineering and architecture fields to teach the basic principles of the law and a ready reference for practicing design professionals. This edition has been completely updated in recognition of the dynamic changes in the law in recent years.

The text has been entirely reordered and several new chapters and chapter sections have been added. The material in this seventh edition has been reorganized and expanded into seven parts: Part One: Basic principles of the law and court systems in both the United States and globally. Part Two: Basic principles of contracts. Part Three: Relationships of individuals and society focusing upon such areas as agency, partnerships, corporations, insurance and governmental regulations. Part Four: Basic principles of tort law including concepts of negligence and product liability. Part Five: Basic principles of property ranging from real property to intellectual property. Part Six: Impact to the daily practice of a design professional involved in a construction project. Part Seven: The role of the design professional in litigation.
