A general introduction to the principles of property law including both personal and real property law. Personal property law focuses on the concept of possession through finders, gifts and bailment. Real property includes the concepts of estates and interests in land including their historical development and modern application.
Property law might fairly be described as two courses, yoked by force together but in truth quite different in their history, their central doctrines and “flavour”, though amenable to comparison on some levels and in some contexts. In this course we deal with Personal Property in the first semester, and Real Property in the second.
