Summary

Acclaimed for its textual clarity and socially progressive perspective, PROPERTY LAW: Rules, Policies, and Practices continues to serve as the foundation of an enlightening and effective course in its Fourth Edition.

This thorough revision builds on the strengths that make the casebook so successful:

  • respected authorship of Professor Joseph William Singer, a well-known and highly regarded expert in the field
  • exceptionally clear explication of property rules and concepts that helps to introduce important themes and elements of the law to first-year students
  • socially progressive yet even-handed sensibility with strong ethical coverage -- unique among Property casebooks
  • balanced coverage of both traditional and non-traditional topics combines all the bases of any Property course (such as access, relation among neighbors, common ownership, leaseholds, real estate transactions, land use regulations, and takings) with interesting socio-economic topics, such as fair housing law, tribal property, and property in people (slavery, body parts, frozen embryos, etc.)
  • cases-and-problems approach to teaching that promotes learning and stimulates class discussion
  • sound organization to encourage efficient progress through the material
  • excellent case selection focusing on recent cases and contemporary social problems
  • thorough Teacher s Manual including answers to problems and teaching tips

Changes for the Fourth Edition keep the casebook timely and teachable:

  • the entire book is fully updated to reflect changes in the law and emerging issues in various areas
  • important new cases include Bonnichsen v. USDA, Tahoe-Sierra Preservation Council Inc. v. Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, Brown v. Legal Foundation of Washington, Wayne County v. Hathcock, Goodridge v. Dept. of Public Health, Lingle v. Chevron U.S.A., Kelo v. City of New London, and San Remo Hotel v. City and County of San Francisco
  • in response to the significant changes in Supreme Court doctrine in the last several years, the Takings chapter is completely updated and reorganized to reflect the current state of the law
  • modernized and tightened notes and problems throughout the book
