In early 2003 the School of Law at the University of Auckland hosted an international conference on Land Law: “Taking Torrens into the 21st Century”. The conference attracted leading Judges, academics and lawyers from Australia, New Zealand and a number of other countries that share the Torrens system of land title registration.

The conference was timely as both a celebration of the endurance of the Torrens system in Australasia for over 140 years, and as providing an academic forum to debate the impact of the new “electronic era” of conveyancing and land title registration.

The papers, edited by David Grinlinton, University of Auckland School of Law, deal with many of the unique characteristics, issues and problems inherent in the Torrens system and, in particular, the opportunities and challenges that automation of the registration systems raise.

This book provides a unique and valuable “snap-shot” of the Torrens system moving into the new millennium, and an enduring source of authoritative commentary and analysis for land lawyers, teachers and students.
