Abstract

Abstract: This paper reports on an analysis of study traits and approaches to learning of undergraduate and postgraduate students of construction law. It draws on a longitudinal study of construction law education and on reflections on educational practice in a UK university. This paper concentrates on student engagement with the study of construction law and presents two examples from practice of what works well and what does not work so well in terms of engaging students in the teaching and learning of construction law. Using some pedagogic theory, a rationale for improving the teaching, learning and assessment régime of construction law is proposed.
