Practical and contextual in its approach, lucid and engaging in style, Textbook on Land Law enlivens the subject for students.

The innovative running case study illustrates the law in action, helping students to visualize the real life applications of the law and demystify abstract concepts. Additional examples, extracts, diagrams, and sample documents contribute to the building blocks of a clear framework, enabling students to gain a solid, pragmatic understanding of essential principles.

Academic details on key topics are explained straightforwardly for an accessible learning experience. A glossary of key land law terminology is included at the end of the book for ease of reference, while end-of-chapter reading suggestions support further research and exam preparation.

This textbook is also accompanied by an Online Resource Centre which includes advice on approaching land law problems, additional topics for further study, and updates to the law.
