Description: Summary:- Modern Land Law offers fresh and contemporary coverage of a traditionally difficult subject. Mark Thompson moves away from the typically dense, black-letter approach adopted by many textbooks to take a more engaging look at the social context within which land law operates. The book is structured to reflect the key topics that are typically covered on the LLB making it ideal for use as a main textbook and the contextual approach and selective coverage ensure that it offers in-depth and rigorous analysis and discussion. The author excels in explaining difficult rules and concepts clearly but without oversimplification and guides students around the common pitfalls in areas where there is typically misunderstanding or confusion.
