Overview

With the publication of Singer's INTRODUCTION TO PROPERTY, there is finally an overview that is understandable to students and acceptable to instructors. This clear and accessible text addresses all the classic and contemporary topics found in the traditional first-year Property course.

When you examine INTRODUCTION TO PROPERTY, be sure to notice:

  • comprehensive coverage includes the Fair Housing Act, Personal Property, and Intellectual Property
  • clear, textual treatment describes the often complicated or antiquated laws of property in a lively, contemporary manner, with numerous helpful examples
  • emphasis is on disagreements among the states on the applicable rules of property law, with explanations of the conflicting interests that generate divergent approaches
  • explanations of the norms and policy bases of Property Law give a balanced account of the various theoretical approaches and enable students to understand the reasoning behind the law

Students who use INTRODUCTION TO PROPERTY will be better prepared for class and for exams because:

  • the book teaches real-world analytical skills, not just how to memorize the black letter law
  • Singer presents arguments for interpreting the issues from different perspectives, then poses hypotheticals for students to consider the text can be used with Singer's successful casebook as well as any other casebook or materials

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Singer (law, Harvard Law School) offers an accessible overview of the law of property which treats both the classic and contemporary topics found in the traditional first-year property course. Throughout, he provides recent citations, as well as citing secondary sources that have more comprehensive treatments. Some statutes that alter common law property rules are also noted, with attention paid to minority rules or disagreements among the states on what the rules of property are or should be.
