This revised and streamlined Eighth Edition of Cases and Text on Property is smart, compact, and thoughtful. The carefully selected and edited cases and problems give students what they need to learn about Property law in the 21st Century.  

New to the 8th Edition:
  • Nadav Shoked, Professor of Law at the Pritzker School of Law, Northwestern University, and Hannah Wiseman, Professor of Law and Professor in the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, Pennsylvania State University join the author team. Their dynamism, intellectual vigor, commitment to students, and interest in recent iterations of property law are reflected in this latest edition.
  • Reflecting new developments as well as a re-examination of existing doctrine, increased attention is given to the treatment of Native American title to land, core tensions in family property law, recent trends in public trust litigation, climate change and its relation to energy law, discrimination in housing and land policy, the effect of Covid-19 on landlord and tenant law and land contracts in general, and the intersection of torts and property.
  • The addition to Chapter 1 of Public Lands Access Assn v. Bd. of County Commrs, dealing with public rights to waterways.
  • Tee-Hit-Ton Indians v. U.S., was added to Chapter 2, illustrating the limited recognition of Native American land claims.
  • Chapter 6 (Concurrent Estates) was expanded to include materials on family property, including Ferrill v. Ferrill (dealing with mortgage expenses for marital property), Sawada v. Endo (covering exposure of marital property to creditors of one spouse), O’Brien v. O’Brien (recognizing a medical license as marital property), and Marvin v. Marvin (recognizing rights in shared property held by a married couple).
  • Important new cases Oakwood Village v. Albertsons; Oak Street LLC v. RDR Enterprises; Coker v. JPMorgan Chase Bank; and Martin v. Cockrell.
  • The authors have continued to revise and streamline the casebook without adding additional pages to this new edition.

Professors and students will benefit from:
  • A casebook well-suited for a 4-unit Property course, but also with sufficient material that it can readily be adapted for a 5- or 6-unit course.
  • Traditional cases-and-notes pedagogy with integrated problems.
  • The introductory chapters put contemporary property law in historical context.
  • A casebook renowned for its absorbing text and teachable cases that many users have stayed with for the entire span of their careers.
  • A comprehensive Teacher’s Manual with brief suggestions for teaching every case, answers to questions asked in the notes, and maps and diagrams to explain difficult cases and problems.
