In this module you will study the fundamental principles and doctrines that underpin the law of real property in English law.  Land Law covers matters of fundamental importance to our society: the ownership and use of land.  You will scrutinise the various rights and estates that arise in registered and unregistered land, both formally and informally, and consider the extent to which those interests might impact third party purchasers.

This module is one of the seven foundations of legal knowledge required by the JASB of the Law Society and Bar Council and it is therefore compulsory for all of you who wish to progress onto the Vocational Stage of Training to become a Solicitor or Barrister.
