Celebrated for their conceptual clarity, titles in the Clarendon Law Series offer concise, accessible overviews of major fields of law and legal thought. Land Law looks at the way in which the law regulates our relationship with the land on which we walk, work, and live. The field of land law is about the connections between people and land, and also the relationships between people, jostling for space and allocating resources. As people change, so do the ways they use and think about land: land law today looks very different from how it did fifty years ago, and in another generation's time it will have changed again. The volume introduces the building blocks of land law, namely property rights in land, and explains how they have evolved by a mixture of design and accident. The text examines ownership rights, non-ownership rights, both legal and equitable, and provides analysis of how these different rights can apply to a single piece of land, and how they are managed and enforced. Throughout the text, the role of registration is central, and the implications of the Land Registration Act 2002 for English land law are fully explored.
