This edition of Professor Singer's innovative property case book offers succinct explanations of complex subjects and technical rules s it clarifies and updates policy discussions. Retaining the special emphasis on current issues and social concerns that distinguished the inaugural edition, PROPERTY LAW, Second Edition, continues to pay special attention to the needs of first year students.
Singer encourages students to think about property in terms of contemporary social issues as well as individual rights, with problems that replicate how issues are handled in the real world. Current cased and fact situations that could be drawn from the daily newspaper (factory closings, welfare benefits, sexual orientation, environmental protection, neighbors' challenge to landlords who allow property to be used for drug activities, etc.) enliven class discussion.
To make PROPERTY LAW and even stronger teaching and learning tool, Singer:
combined coverage of servitudes and future interests in one chapter with new problems.
reorganized the Fair Housing chapter to make it easier to teach; it now starts with discriminatory treatment
added new problems and cases, including Dolan v. Tigard, Bennis Michigan, Smith v. Fair Employment and Housing Division, and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1996
In 13 chapters ranging from Competing Claims to Original Acquisition and Allocation of Property Rights to Property in People, Singer covers all the traditional property topics, plus important issues like American Indian Law and discrimination law. Accompanied by an excellent Teacher's Manual that offers samples syllabi, answers to every question and problem, and tips for new teacher, PROPERTY LAW, Second Edition, is sure to be enthusiastically received by students and teachers alike.
