Academically rigorous yet welcoming and fully attuned to the needs of the student reader, Chris Bevan's Land Law represents a new breed of textbook, blending traditional and contemporary teaching approaches to guide readers to a confident understanding of the subject.
- The author's engaging writing style speaks directly to students and anticipates their questions, enabling the book to present a sophisticated analysis of the law that does not overwhelm readers
- 93 carefully-constructed diagrams and flowcharts set out the material in intuitive visual formats, providing bird's eye views of topics and concepts and thereby aiding understanding
- Key cases for each topic are succinctly summarized in a 'facts', 'legal issue', 'judgment' format to provide students with a clear sense of why they are important and to pique their interest, providing a springboard for independent reading of the primary sources
- 'Future directions' sections at the end of each chapter epitomize the book's forward-looking, horizon-scanning perspective, proving to students that land law remains active and relevant, and encouraging a critical approach to the status quo
- The book provides focused yet comprehensive coverage, closely mapped to LLB and GDL courses and aligned with subject trends and priorities - unregistered land is covered in appropriate brevity, and a full chapter is devoted to the increasingly-important topic of land law and human rights
