The Journal of Legal Affairs and Dispute Resolution in Engineering and Construction adheres to the same submission guidelines used by other ASCE journals, with some content and style policies tailored to accommodate the specific subject matter. The mission of the Journal is to serve as the technical reference and resource for construction lawyers engaged in public and private practice, as well as for design engineers, construction engineers, and executives responsible for successful project administration. The Journal provides thought-provoking discussions and insight into the legal relationships arising out of the changing nature of project delivery systems, dispute avoidance and resolution, sustainability concerns, and effective project execution. The Journal will focus on legal issues, aim to increase the attention given to legal systems during engineering and construction practice, and seek excellence in the application of legal resources for the success of engineering and construction projects. The Journal accepts papers and articles spanning legal issues and litigation pertaining to all areas of engineering and construction, including contract law and interpretation; professional liability and negligence; public bidding law and regulation; negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and alternative dispute-resolution systems; tort and insurance law; workers’ compensation; environmental law and compliance; sustainability and climate change; acts and statutes governing design and construction of public or private projects; state and federal hazardous waste law; maritime, coastal, and ocean law; real estate development and construction law; product liability; labor and employment law; administrative law; government contracts; corporate and bankruptcy law and regulation; claims analysis, defense, and litigation; intellectual property law; land-use law; ADA and OSHA compliance law and regulations; ethical violations giving rise to liability; and the teaching of law to engineers and construction managers.
