This unit explores the core principles of English land law. Though broadly doctrinal in focus, it will also expose the historical development of those principles, the policies that have driven their development, socio-political perspectives on their form and practical operation, and the future scope for law reform in the area. Core topics will be: the history, structure and concerns of land law; the registered title regime; formal and informal acquisition of interests; co-ownership and successive ownership; leases; licences; easements; covenants; security; future challenges.
