Principles of Property Law Summary

Principles of Property Law by Alison Clarke (University of Surrey)

Principles of Property Law offers a critical and contextual analysis of fundamental property law concepts and principles, providing students with the necessary tools to enable them to make sense of English land law rules in the context of real world applications. This new book adopts a contextual approach, placing the core elements of a qualifying law degree property and land law course in the context of general property principles and practices as they have developed in the UK and other jurisdictions in response to a changing societal relationship with a range of tangible and intangible things. Also drawing on concepts of property developed by political and legal theorists, economists and environmentalists, Principles of Property Law gives students a clear understanding of how property law works, why it matters and how the theory connects with the real world. Suitable for undergraduate law students studying property and land law in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as postgraduate students seeking an accessible analysis of property law as part of a course in law, land administration, environmental law or development studies.

Principles of Property Law Reviews

'Principles of Property Law is a worthy addition to the Law in Context series. Beautifully written in a simple style, pitched at students who are new to property law, this is in fact much more than an introductory text. It provides a vivid and scholarly account of complex theories and philosophies of property, illustrating and critiquing them through the use of examples from real life and from legal provisions. Although the focus is on English law, the author usefully brings in comparative examples from a range of other jurisdictions. The book is very carefully structured so that the reader is moved from the general to the particular ('Registration' and 'Leases' are the last two chapters) without losing sight of the various theoretical approaches, a thread which holds the whole book together.' Sarah Blandy, University of Sheffield
