Land law is fun!

Even amongst other law teachers, the admission that one enjoys land law is usually met with surprise, a degree of suspicion, and often a suggestion that you might be well on the way to satisfying the M’Naghten rules on insanity. But why?

Certainly land law can be complex and sometimes illogical – but what area of law is not? That’s the joy of it! Approach this subject with fascination instead of dread and it can be an absolute pleasure.

I was fortunate enough to learn from a wonderful and enthusiastic tutor who, tongue in cheek, began every land law tutorial by making us recite “land law is fun!”  Perhaps the silliness of this start put us in the mood, but he was right, it was great fun.  Approach land law with an open mind and prepare to enjoy it….after all, land law is fun!!
