Land law is a core element of all law degrees in England and Wales. Unlocking Land Law will ensure that you grasp the main concepts of this core area with ease, providing you with an indispensable foundation to the subject. This third edition of Unlocking Land Law is fully up-to-date with the latest changes in the law and now includes discussion of home information packs (HiPs), the move towards e-conveyancing, developments in proprietary estoppel, and all the major new cases.
The Unlocking the Law series is designed specifically to make the law accessible. Each chapter opens with aims and objectives and contains activities such as quick quizzes and self-test questions, key facts charts, diagrams to aid learning and numerous headings and sub-headings to make the subject manageable. New features include summaries to check your understanding of each chapter, a glossary of legal terminology, essay questions with answer plans and exam questions with guidance on answering.
All titles in the series follow the same formula and include the same features so you can move easily from one subject to another. The series covers all the core subjects required by the Bar Council and the Law Society for entry onto professional qualifications as well as popular option units.
