Complete Land Law is supported by clear author commentary, choice extracts, and useful learning features. The explanations and examples in this textbook have been crafted to help students hone their understanding of land law. The Complete titles are ambitious in their scope; they've been carefully developed with teachers to offer law students more than just a presentation of the key concepts. Instead they offer a complete package. Only by building on the foundations of the subject, by showing how the law works, demonstrating its application through extracts from cases and judgments, and by giving students the tools and the confidence to think critically about the law will they gain a complete understanding. This book is accompanied by a free to access Online Resource Centre which features resources for students and lecturers. For students - Guidence for answering end-of-chapter questions in the book - Self-test question with instant feedback - A flashcard glossary of key terms - Web links to useful websites For lecturers - Customizable PowerPoint slides containing the diagrams from the book for use in lectures and seminars
