Cases and Materials on Modern Property Law
This case book is a tightly organized, manageable volume with emphasis on engaging, well-edited cases, useful notes, and crisp textual analysis. An introductory chapter, which now contains the Kelo case, examines property law's scope and position in the U.S. legal system. The next chapter on landlord-tenant law is accessible for first year law students, providing a challenging forum for discussion of the interplay among the common law of property, statutes, and contractual undertakings. Subsequent chapters deal with personal property, the variety of interests in real property, real estate transactions, attributes of landownership, and how municipal/state government controls private land use.
