Unlocking Land Law (London: Hodder & Stoughton, 2004; 2nd ed., 2007; 3rd ed., 2010)

Unlocking Land Law is part of the Unlocking the Law series of very popular textbooks. The series was relaunched at the end of March. The new series retains many of the most popular features of the previous books such as case summaries, key facts and reference to key texts, but introduces new features such as sample essay questions at the end of each chapter and student and mentor tips throughout the book. Topic areas are broken down into sections with logical progression through key issues, with extensive use of charts, diagrams and flow charts to reinforce the information in the body of the text. Students traditionally find Land Law a difficult subject to study and Unlocking Land Law attempts to introduce students to this subject in an interesting and attractive format. This third edition has been expanded to include recent developments in the law in areas such as proprietary estoppel, mortgages and easements, and is linked to a dedicated website giving students the chance to access interactive questions and to keep updated on changes in the law. The series aims to have revision MP3s available for free download in the near future.
