Construction –  the term details the legal process of interpreting a phrase or document; of trying to find it’s meaning using strict or liberal method. Whether it be a contract or a statute, there are times when a phrase may be unclear or of several meanings. Then, either lawyers or judges must attempt to interpret or “construct” the probable aim and purpose of the phrase, by extrapolating from other parts of the document or, in the case of statutes, referring to a interpretation law which gives legal construction guidelines.
