Summary

In the Third Edition, the book has been updated throughout with new cases and materials while retaining the basic format. The unique contribution of this casebook to the teaching of Property Law is its inclusion of problems and materials that allow the teacher to introduce students to issues in professional ethics and client counseling in a way that integrates well with the coverage of Property Law. In addition, it also provides problems that allow for an exposure to ADR. This book also takes a very teachable approach to the standard coverage of a four- to six-hour basic property course.
