9780735588608: Property Law: Rules, Policies and Practices, 5th Edition

Outstanding features of Property Law: Rules, Policies, and Practices, written by Professor Joseph William Singer, a highly regarded authority in the field, include:

  • well-written notes with clear explanations of the law so students can learn complicated rules easily
  • strong coverage of civil rights law (fair housing and public accommodations law)
  • strong coverage of statutes, regulations, and statutory interpretation
  • problem-oriented approach, applying concepts, rules, and doctrines to new situations one might find in practice, with problems updated to be current
  • recent cases and interesting fact situations

Meticulously and thoughtfully updated and refined, the Fifth Edition offers:

  • reorganized chapter sequence
    • Part I, renamed "Property in a Free and Democratic Society" links the estates system to the anti-feudal policy and to the current consumer protection orientation of the subprime crisis
    • reverses the order of previous Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 to begin with the easy-to-understand trespass material on the right to exclude and limits on the right to exclude created by common law, statutes, and constitutional law. These chapters teach from the very beginning that property rights are limited rather than absolute, that they involve social relationships, not just control over things, and that property law is defined by both common law and statutes
    • all-new Chapter 2, "The Framework of Property Relations in a Democracy," shows the connection between property law rules designed to prevent the re-emergence of feudalism and regulations designed to respond to the current subprime mortgage crisis. New material on subprime mortgages demonstrates how we can understand all of property law by thinking about the lessons of the subprime crisis
    • Chapter 3, now entitled "Competing Claims to Property" focuses partly on how property rights in land were historically created and partly on how property claims emerge today. Most important, it treats these issues as involving competing claims to property
    • new Part II, entitled "What Can Be Owned?," puts the intellectual property chapter and the chapter on property in persons (renamed) at the beginning of the book as an introduction to the problem of defining what can be owned
    • material on tribal property is now integrated into a coherent treatment that addresses both the legacy of conquest and contemporary legal issues
  • new cases, among them:
    • Commonwealth v. Fremont Investment & Loan (on subprime lending)
    • Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. & J.K. Rowling v. RDR Books (on the Harry Potter copyright case)
    • Wilcox v. Stroub (on ownership of the papers of Confederate governors of South Carolina)
  • timely updates throughout, among them:
    • information on Measure 37 in Oregon (and Measure 49)
    • changes in mortgages law following the subprime crisis
    • changes in adverse possession law in Colorado and New York
    • fuller coverage of the Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act
    • changes in the law of same sex marriage
    • state legislative and constitutional responses to Kelo and substantial changes in the rule against perpetuities
