Landmark Cases in Land Law

Edited by: Nigel Gravells

Landmark Cases in Land Law is the sixth volume in a series of collected essays on leading UK cases (previous volumes have covered law of equity, family law, law of tort, law of contract, and law of restitution). The book provides a reappraisal of cases from a wide range of perspectives - focusing on their historical, social, or theoretical context, highlighting previously neglected aspects and even questioning their perceived importance. Collectively, the essays explore common themes that pervade the law of property in the UK - the numerus clausus principle, the conclusiveness of registration, the desirability of certainty in the law, and the central question of the enforceability of interests through changes in ownership of land. This collection will be of interest to academics, students, and practitioners.
