Proven effective, Estates in Land and Future Interests, Seventh Edition provides an accessible and systematic presentation of the classifications and rules of estates and future interests law. Clear explanations, along with comprehensive problem sets in each chapter, cover all of the rules as they are applied in practice. Students will master this complex area of Property Law by applying the rules and assigning classifications to the hypothetical problems in this practice-based workbook.

New to the Seventh Edition:

  • Endnotes with case support for most of the law in the text.
  • Correction of ambivalencies and errors in the sixth edition.


  • Comprehensive problem sets for each chapter (600 problems total) with fully explained and analyzed answers in every chapter provide more effective learning than can hornbooks or other study guides.
  • A skeletal, systematized account of the common law in its modern-day form.
  • Dynamic learning philosophy helping students focus first on the classifications of estates and future interests, then on the rules governing these classifications, and then the Rule against Perpetuities.
  • The book explains the rules and provides problems and answers that carefully lead students from one difficult step to the next, each step building on the ones that went before.
  • Ideal for students in both first-year Property as well as Wills, Trusts, and Estates.
  • Coverage of all the important rules as they are applied today with the goal of providing an integrated understanding in preference to a historical foundation.
