Conceptualising Property Law: Integrating Common Law and Civil Law Traditions by Yaell Emerich
In this comparative analysis, specific parallels are drawn between the common law and civil law in their treatment of historical property models, possession, ownership, private property limits, objects of property, fragmentation and modifications to property, and trusts. This integrated approach to common law and civil law property draws examples from multiple jurisdictions, including England, Scotland, Canada, Quebec, First Nations, France, and Germany.
Private, transsystemic, and comparative law scholars and students, especially property law scholars will be interested in the book's approach to property law and its analysis of the theoretical foundations and conceptions of property and ownership in the common law and civil law traditions. It will also be informative for property law practitioners.
