about

Land Law: A Problem-Based Approach creates a fresh approach to learning land law through the use of real-life scenarios which bring what is often perceived to be a dry and difficult subject to life.  This helps both to engage the student and make the subject more accessible as well as placing land law in it's real world context.  With Land Law: A Problem-Based Approach, context is placed at the heart of learning and guides students through application rather than via an abstract set of rules and can therefore gain a deeper understanding of how land law works, not just what it is.

This new textbook creates a fresh approach to learning land law through the use of scenarios found in real-life which bring what is often perceived to be a dry and difficult subject to life. This helps both to engage the student and make the subject more accessible as well as demonstrating to students how land law actually operates in the real world. Land Law is often seen as an esoteric subject with lots of technicalities and complex vocabulary and students often forget the context in which it operates. With Land Law: A Problem-Based Approach, context is placed at the heart of learning. Students are learning through application rather than via an abstract set of rules and can therefore gain a deeper understanding of how land law works, not just what it is.

Unlike other textbooks, Land Law: A Problem-Based Approach integrates a thorough exposition of the law with practice, facilitating a more active learning approach and helping students to engage directly with the key cases and statutes to develop key skills of analysis, problem-solving and application.  Written in a clear and concise style but without sacrificing detail or analysis, the book guides the reader towards a deeper understanding of the land law curriculum.

¿ ¿let¿s put this into context¿ boxes which require students to apply the law that they have learnt back to the problem scenario and offer opportunites to reflect and consolidate on the content covered
¿ Essential Cases and Esential Statutes boxes reinforce the essential role of cases and legislation in the development and application of land law and help students identify key cases and legislation for revision purposes
¿ Understanding Terminology boxes and an online glossary help students to get to grips with the technical terms and vocabulary unique to land law
