Books Info:

Land Law free pdf This volume provides a collection of essays for students studying land law at undergraduate level. The book brings together leading authors, as well as some younger scholars, and explores land law from a variety of traditions within legal scholarship. Chapters are included on topics essential to all land law courses, and the book seeks to question the boundaries of the discipline and to engage with wider debates about the role of land in society. The five parts of the book address separate themes within land law. The first part explores what is meant by "property in land". Part two sets land law in a historical perspective, from Romanist ideas on land through to recent land law reforms. Part three explores the connections between land law and citizenship, with chapters on women's claims to property, adverse possession, mortgages, homelessness, indigenous peoples in Australia, and post-apartheid laws in South Africa. Part four discusses a range of policy issues from the family home to the increasing "Europeanization of land law". The final part of the book explores land law from a more traditional, doctrinal perspective, opening with a chapter setting out the five keys to an understanding of land law.
