Summary Land Law, 7th edition provides a comprehensive coverage of all areas and jurisdictions of contemporary land law. This edition continues the approach of previous editions. It traces the development of land law from its English origins, but in the context of local conditions that led to the emergence of a uniquely Australian land law. Also, this edition broadens the focus of the chapters on general land law to include all Australian jurisdictions. All chapters have been completely revised to incorporate the many recent statutory developments and case law. Areas of significant change extend to co-ownership, leases, easements, mortgages, strata title, Torrens title, Crown lands, and Indigenous rights to land, including native title and statutory land rights. This edition concludes with a new chapter on compulsory acquisition of land.The book is written both for students seeking a structured and accessible approach to land law, as well as for practitioners and researchers looking for detailed coverage and references to secondary literature.
