This paper is a summary of the law affecting structural engineers. It outlines the extent of the structural engineer's duties to his client and to third parties when advising, designing, supervising, and certifying. Copyright, property in plans and specifications, the special position of local authorities, and the structural engineer's responsibility for his partners and employees are reviewed. Recent developments in the law are emphasised, and the underlying trends discussed, including relevant aspects of the Misrepresentation Act 1967, the Defective Premises Act 1972, and the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977. The paper states the law as at August 1978. Christopher Lewsley
