This book contains a collection of peer reviewed papers presented at the tenth biennial Modern Studies in Property Law conference held at the University of Liverpool in April 2014.

It is the 8th volume to be published under the name of the conference. The conference and its published proceedings have become an established forum for property lawyers from around the world to showcase current research in the discipline.

This collection reflects the diversity and contemporary relevance of modern research in property law. Incorporating a keynote address by Sir John Mummery, retired Lord Justice of Appeal, on ‘Property In The Information Age’, a number of chapters consider the contribution of property law to issues central to the human condition; the home, health and death.

Other papers illustrate an enduring need to question and explore fundamental concepts of the subject as well as to consider the challenges of reforming the law. Collectively the chapters demonstrate the vibrancy and importance of property law in dealing with modern concerns across the common law world.
