Whether you’re new to higher education, coming to legal study for the first time or just wondering what Land Law is all about, Beginning Land Law is the ideal introduction to help you hit the ground running. Starting with the basics and an overview of each topic, it will help you come to terms with the structure, themes and issues of the subject so that you can begin your Land Law module with confidence.
Adopting a clear and simple approach with legal vocabulary explained in a detailed glossary, Sarah King breaks the subject of Land Law down using practical everyday examples to make it understandable for anyone, whatever their background. Diagrams and flowcharts simplify complex issues, important cases are identified and explained and on-the- spot questions help you recognise potential issues or debates within the law so that you can contribute in classes with confidence.
Beginning Land Law is an ideal first introduction to the subject for LLB, GDL or ILEX and especially international students, those enrolled on distance learning courses or on other degree programmes.
