Description

Estates in Land and Future Interests combines graphics, text boxes, and pedagogical techniques especially helpful to visual learners to teach the basics of estates and future interests, a particularly confusing subset of first-year property. One central graphic--a flow chart used to identify the state of the title after a particular conveyance--links various estates to the future interests that follow them. The complete flow chart appears on the inside back cover for easy reference. The text's step-by-step, process approach breaks up analytical tasks into smaller pieces, reducing the degree to which students get lost in the material. Written in clear, simple language, with short paragraphs and chapters, Estates in Land and Future Interests features an open, attractive design enhanced by graphics to make the material easier to understand. Students are given a variety of opportunities to actively engage the material with problem sets and answers, study questions, and practice exercises. A vocabulary appendix helps them quickly and easily review terms easily. An exact match to the coverage in Dukeminier & Krier's Property, Estates in Land and Future Interests is a perfect companion to Aspen's popular casebook.

The Fourth Edition features expanded explanations for the Study Questions throughout the book.
