Jackson’s Gateway to Land Law aims to give readers a critical understanding of land law in two ways. First, by a clear exposure and analysis of the rules of land law, and explanation of why those rules are formulated in the way they are. Second, by presenting a clear method of critical thinking so that students can learn what it is to construct a convincing argument about land law. The result is a ground-breaking title that satisfies a need for critical thinking among students of land law, while containing all of the content required of a textbook of land law.

The title is based on the author’s passionate belief that land law can and should be presented to students in a way that engages students’ imagination and aids critical understanding of a difficult subject. It will appeal to students who are interested in being challenged and who wish to gain a more critical awareness of the subject beyond a basic understanding.

Key benefits:
  • Comprehensive coverage at the appropriate level of detail for the standard full year course length to encourage a full appreciation of this complex subject.
  • An accessible, learner friendly style - retaining a strong academic content - combined with the author’s lively, imaginative writing, encouraging students to engage with the subject. 
  • Clear exposure and analysis of the key rules and cases of land law, and more extensive explanation of the rationale of why those rules are formulated in the way they are, assists a deep understanding of the fundamental principles of the subject. 
  • Creative use of charts and diagrams, further reading and clear, non-technical explication and illustration of the concepts covered.
  • Employs an innovative new approach where the fundamental principles are laid out in analytical “building blocks” designed to give students a critical understanding by explaining what it is to construct a convincing argument about land law. 
  • Visual aids are used throughout in addition to critical thinking exercises and dialogues between lecturer and student.
