Companion Website: www.aspenlawschool.com/books/edwardsestates

This concise text offers a proven-effective method for teaching the complex terminology and relationships of estates and future interests. Through helpful pedagogy, clear presentation, and a building-block approach, Edwards simplifies—without oversimplifying—the process of analyzing the classifications and relational transactions of estates in land and future interests.

Updated and honed in its Third Edition, Estates in Land and Future Interests: A Step-by-Step Guide, features:

graphics, text boxes, and dynamic pedagogy to illustrate and clarify basic estates and future interests concepts and relationships
a central flow chart on the inside back cover of the book that identifies the state of the title after a particular conveyance and which can be used throughout the book to link estates to the future interests that follow them
a building-block approach that breaks analytical tasks into their constituent parts
lucid and succinct text supported by a clean and uncluttered page design
problem sets with answers, study questions, and practice exercises
a logical organization that tracks the coverage in Dukeminier/Krier
Glossary of terms clearly defined in the appendix
Teacher’s Manual and PowerPoint slides

Few supplemental texts offer as much teaching support as this step-by-step guide, which comes with its own Teacher’s Manual and PowerPoint slides. Your students will thank you for adopting the Third Edition.
