Land Law Summary


Land Law by Chris Bevan (Assistant Professor in Property Law, University of Nottingham)

Academically rigorous yet welcoming and fully attuned to the needs of the student reader, Chris Bevan's Land Law represents a new breed of textbook, blending traditional and contemporary teaching approaches to guide its readers to a confident understanding of the subject. With its lively, engaging writing style - in which the author's enthusiasm is always apparent - and distinctive way of speaking directly to students, anticipating their questions and areas of confusion, Bevan's book does not simply set out the law but actively teaches it. Clear explanations are complemented by frequent, carefully-crafted visual aids, conveying key concepts in ways that all students can understand, and topics are broken down into sections that are easy to digest and navigate. This book maintains a critical emphasis and encourages students to consider and understand the law in context (both within society and their degree), not just in the abstract. 'Key case' boxes offer concise insights on leading cases that pique students' interest, spurring them to conduct their own reading of primary material, and although the book reflects on historical background in order to make sense of today's law, its overriding perspective is forward-looking, epitomised in the 'Future directions' conclusions for each chapter which consider future implications and likely reforms. Balancing brevity with detail and rigour with accessibility, Land Law is a truly modern textbook that supports and motivates its readers, allowing them to reap the rewards an understanding of this complex but fascinating subject will bring. Online resources The published text will be accompanied by extensive online resources containing a test bank of questions, animated diagrams, 'Wider debates' podcasts from the author, 'Leading lawyers' perspectives' videos, advice on answering essay and problem questions, updates on changes in the law and new cases, as well as links to useful websites.

We've been waiting for a book like Bevan's for a while - one which balances depth with clarity.

Students will find that the questions that occur to them as they read are consistently addressed and addressed very well. * Dr Michael John-Hopkins, Senior Lecturer in Law, Oxford Brookes University *
This is the best property law book I've read - it really whet my appetite for the subject. I found the diagrams unbelievably helpful (most textbooks don't have enough) and they really helped me to understand the law. * Steph Potter, LLB student, University of York *
What stands out about this book is the clarity and coherence of its explanations. It is fresh and easy to read, providing a clear and useful analysis of the law, integrating academic opinion, and making good use of diagrams to help students. * Dr Sean Thomas, Associate Professor in Law, Durham University *
This text is excellent at providing a good amount of detail without making the reader feel swamped with information. Its direct, engaging conversational style makes it perfect for LLB students. * Emily Allbon, Senior Lecturer in Law, City, University of London *
