Modern Land Law is one of the most current and reliable textbooks available on land law today.

Editorial Reviews

"Dixon is back to the rescue again with this excellent new edition on the modern law. Many students will be well aware of his contribution to this important and difficult area from his other works which are well-known within the small circle of student lawyers and practitioners over the years." - Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

"If you are looking for an accessible, clear and comprehensive explanation of modern land law, then you should seriously consider Martin Dixon's Modern Land Law.It refreshingly considers the law in a straight-forward and accessible way while, at the same time, avoiding over-simplifying the law." - Russell J Kelsall, The Student Law Journal
