An innovative Property casebook that reimagines the law school casebook format. Covering all the major topics included in a basic 1L Property course, Property Law leverages resources more typicall to an undergraduate textbook than a traditional law school casebook, making use of sidebars, illustrations, and other design devices to present material more clearly. The authors present concepts simply, then move the discussion toward complexity in contrast to the approach taken by many current property texts. Clear yet sophisticated, the casebook is the perfect choice for all skill levels. Including problems that students can and should be able to do on their own, explanatory answers, and skills-based exercises, this casebook is both professor-friendly and student-friendly. Themes that run through the course are highlighted throughout the book, resulting in a casebook that clearly presents the fundamentals of property law. This allows students to develop an understanding of basic concepts on their own while allowing professors to assist their students in developing an advanced understanding of property law. Although Property Law goes far beyond bar tested topics, the authors are experts on the property coverage on the bar exam, and wrote the book to give students exposure to every topic they are likely to see on the bar exam.

New to the 3rd Edition:

  • Some cases have been eliminated or shortened to make coverage more manageable, especially for four-credit courses.
  • Chapter 9 revised to include Cedar Point Nursery v. Hassid, the Supreme Court's most recent takings case.
  • Additional corrections, updates, and refinements throughout.


Professors and students will benefit from:

  • Property Law starts from simplicity and moves to complexity: The book first provides text that explains the basic doctrine, then presents a simple case example, and finally moves to more complex issues.
  • Cases are introduced with explanatory text discussing the law and issues surrounding the case. This radically different approach from most other casebooks allows students to have a better grasp of the concepts and themes before they even read the case.
  • Problems and exercises that students can complete on their own, with explanatory answers included in an appendix.
  • Cases that are used as examples, not introductions to legal rules. Many topics in the book feature introductory text, illustrations, and problem sets before a single case is introduced, to aid in students' legal learning.
  • The inclusion of sample documents, helping students to understand core concepts.
  • Perfect for a four-credit course, the book also features a modular design that can be used in courses of varying credit size.
  • More comprehensive bar exam topic coverage than any competing book.
