Georgia Construction Law Handbook follows and unpacks new movement in this area of law as it develops.
It is a guide to common construction law issues, such as regulatory matters and the collection of money using the mechanic’s lien law or the public works bond laws. A ready reference for attorneys and construction and design professionals, the Handbook analyzes construction law in Georgia, as set forth in the Official Code of Georgia Annotated and reported State and federal court decisions, and includes relevant legal forms.
