Taking a fresh and innovative approach to the subject, Making Sense of Land Law is an essential textbook designed to help those coming to the subject for the first time. Practical scenarios and diagrams are feature throughout, making the subject come alive. The Q&A-style of debate in the book is unique and takes the reader through the issues step by step. This book is suitable as a core textbook, but also as a revision guide or for self-study.

This is an ideal text for a land law module at first or second year level, as part of an LLB degree. Also useful for undergraduates of other related disciplines in which an awareness of land and property law is required in an easy-to-digest and accessible manner, such as planning, estate management and business property and other built environment courses.

As an early convert to Making Sense of Land Law I saw an immediate improvement in the progression and comprehension of my students. The conversational style offers a real alternative to traditional land law textbooks, which the students welcomed. A valuable text that provides insight and learning on key matters in land law. – Kevin Greene, University of Sunderland, UK
Making Sense of Land Law offers students an accessible route into the subject. It breaks down complex areas of law, and leads students through clear examples and highlights key areas of discussion. The summary boxes are a useful tool which help to structure learning. – Kate McCarthy, University of Chester, UK.
