Property Law - LAW316

Property law lies at the heart of our legal system. Jeremy Bentham once aptly observed: 'Property and Law are born together and die together. Before laws were made there was no property; take away law, and property ceases'. This unit provides a contextual analysis and outline of the Anglo-Australian law on property and covers such topics as the history and theory of property law; systems of title to, and resolution of competing interests in, property; concurrent ownership of property; native title; and mortgages, leases, easement and covenants in relation to real property.
