This book is a collection of essays honouring and engaging with the work of the late Professor Patrick McAuslan. It is a collection that narrates, analyses and critiques McAuslan’s contributions, as well as offering substantive perspectives on how his work has impacted the legal fields in which he was involved: including, those of Land Law, Urban Planning Law and policy, land use and participation in developing countries, democratic constitutionalism, and legal education.

The essays present McAuslan’s contributions in the contexts in which they emerged, and according to both the circumstances and motivations that shaped them, as well as the challenges they encountered. It thus provides an ideal starting point for scholars, students and policy makers that either have already interacted with McAuslan’s ideas and work, or who have yet to do so.
