This popular textbook on Land Law provides a clear, straightforward and concise introduction to this rich and adaptable area of the law. It uses accessible language and stresses a full understanding of a few important cases rather than a superficial understanding of many.

The extensive companion website contains a glossary, quizzes and suggested techniques on how to tackle questions and problems, available at macmillanihe.com/Davys-Land-Law-11e

This is an ideal companion for students studying land law as part of a law degree or on the GDL/CPE; it is perfect also for students taking the subject as part of a surveying or estate management course.
