The rules of land law are numerous, complex, and, in some cases, baffling to students (and the study of land law is often portrayed as dull). All too frequently, those who succeed in understanding how the law operates in other areas find themselves defeated by land law. Writing about the law of property, even the great British legal scholar Blackstone apparently succumbed to the depressing conclusion that the study of land law 'afforded the student less amusement and pleasure in the pursuit' than the study of crime and tort. This book gives students the confidence, spur, and tools to go on to develop their own perspectives. The book covers the main points of land law found in the syllabuses of law schools in England and Wales, provides sufficient detail for gaining an overview of the subject, and offers footnotes with plenty of pointers. As the author says in the preface, "use this book as a guide so as not to get lost - then go out and explore."
