About Personal Property Law

Personal Property law is probably the most important and yet the most neglected and least understood aspect of English law. Historically, Personal Property law was neglected because it was commonly, but misleadingly, regarded as belonging to a number of entirely separate legal categories. The recent growth of specialist literature in this area is indicative of the increasing awareness of the importance of personal property law by practitioners.



Personal Property: Text and Materials addresses the problem of the near invisibility of personal property law within the law curriculum by producing an integrated casebook that covers both the underlying philosophy and concepts of personal property law and the impact of evolving business practices on the development of the law. The book is inspired by a determination to produce a concept orientated approach to the study of personal property law, avoiding the specific-contract approach to the subject that has hitherto impoverished the study of the concepts and philosophy of personal property law in the United Kingdom.



The book is aimed at undergraduate law students on commercial law courses as well as students on integrated property law courses. By considering all the branches of law that touch commercial transactions such as equity, trusts, property law and restitution, Personal Property: Text and Materials, is also ideal for students studying postgraduate commercial law programmes who may or may not have qualifying law degrees

Reviews

“...helpful to a student who is looking to assemble a coherent view of topics that he or she might otherwise consign to the familiar pigeon-holes of equity, commercial law or land law. usefulness of the casebook, which fills a neglected gap in the market.” –  David Fox, Cambridge Law Journal

“The successful (and enjoyable) study of property depends heavily on the selection and organisation of the material studied. This is why books like Sarah Worthington's 'Personal Property Law: Text and Materials' are so important.
There is real value here. This commentary provides another incentive for instructors to use this book rather than produce their own collections of cases. It adds another informed voice to classroom discussions.
” –  Robert Chambers, University of Alberta, Trust Law International
