A little book that's big on information, the Architect's Legal Pocket Book is the definitive reference on legal issues for architects and architectural students. This handy pocket guide covers key legal principles which will help you to quickly understand the law and where to go for further information.

Now in a fully updated new edition, this bestselling book covers a wide range of subjects focused on the UK including building legislation, negligence, liability, planning policy and development, listed buildings, party wall legislation, and rights of light. This edition also contains greater coverage of contracts including the RIBA contracts, dispute resolution and legal issues in professional practice.

Illustrated with clear diagrams and featuring key cases, this is an invaluable source of practical information and a comprehensive guide of the current law for architects. It is a book no architect should be without.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Architect 's Legal Pocket Book achieves what is very nearly impossible: it humanises the law. The law is an intimidating beast, no less so when configured to the equally complex and routinely truculent machinations of architectural practice. But by adopting a highly effective combination of forensic detail and lucid presentation, Cousins is able to make sense of highly complex subjects and convey their meaning in a simplified way that should be easily accessible to all within the industry. Watch this space, this handy and indispensible guide could well usurp its coveted predecessors and emerge as the essential guide for the next generation of architects and students.

“Brief and brilliant!”

I bought this book to study for an exam and it was a great buy! It's a briefer version of many other books out there and you can quickly find what you need (especially when you are in an exam).

Great for a Part... More
