Additional Book Details

Concise Introduction to Property Law is first and foremost a casebook, designed to expose first year law students to the rich heritage of American Property Law through the study of court decisions. Instructors will find many of the familiar cases used in most Property textbooks, as well as many new ones. The notes in all chapters not only point out legal developments and additional cases, but also include substantial detail on the historical and social context in which the principal cases arose. The notes also provide a glimpse into the lives of the parties to the cases, some of whom are famous and many of whom are not. The book also has a definite inter-state comparative law perspective. This is primarily manifested by special attention to cases arising in the state of Hawaii, the one American jurisdiction whose property history departs from the national experience in dramatic ways.
