Modern Studies in Property Law, Volume 11

Sue Farran (Editor), Russell Hewitson (Editor), Adam Ramshaw (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthologypeer-review


What are the contemporary challenges faced by property law as we enter the 2nd decade of the 21st century?

This collection brings together the research and perspectives of an international body of academics and practitioners to consider these challenges and how even familiar topics must develop to meet new demands and developments.

As with previous books in the Modern Studies in Property Law series, this volume adopts a broad approach to topics encompassed by 'property law' in the firm belief that the boundaries that divide are shadowy at best and constantly moving in the endeavour to keep up with what is 'modern'.

This collection looks at 5 themes:
- Comparative perspectives, including a chapter on grazing and cropping rights in Northern Ireland, and analysis of the anomalies of the English trust law as seen from a civil law perspective;
- Taking and alienating property, including a chapter on bankruptcy and the family home;
- Modern dilemmas, including chapters on trusts in virtual currency and on smart homes;
- Old chestnuts – new challenges, including analysis of the mortgage law reform in Scotland and a chapter on the ouster principle in common law jurisdictions; and
- Wills, death and other morbid topics, with chapters on English succession law and the role of knowledge and approval in retrospective assessments of capacity.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic prevented the 13th biennial conference being held in 2020 as planned but despite this, the authors and co-editors persevered to produce this interesting and diverse collection.
