A concise edition of the legendary casebook, Property: Concise Edition, Fourth Edition, is perfectly suited for use in a four-credit course. Property, now in its Tenth Edition, is one of the best—and best loved—casebooks of all time. A unique blend of authority and good humor, you’ll find a moveable feast of visual interest, compelling cases, and timely coverage of contemporary issues.
This concise edition is more than merely a shorter version of the classic Dukeminier and Krier casebook. In style, format, and substance, it is its own book, even while it retains Jesse Dukeminier’s trademark wit, passion, and human interest perspective. Its goal is to make Property law more accessible to students without sacrificing intellectual rigor. It includes features that the classic book doesn’t have, such as skills exercises and review problems. Many of the Notes are very different than those in the classic book. It is far-more visual book than the classic book, and indeed all other Property casebooks.
New to the 4th Edition:
- For the first time, Skills Exercises have been added in several chapters. These are designed to provide students with an opportunity to develop various practice skills such as drafting and negotiation.
- Additional Review Exercises.
- Recent U.S. Supreme Court case on takings (Cedar Point Nursery v. Hassid).
- Newly added cases, including Wetzel v. Glen St. Andrew Living Community, LLC, on the liability of landlords for tenant-on-tenant discriminatory harassment.
- Enhanced discussions about the racial dimensions of various Property topics.
Professors and students will benefit from:
- While it is student-friendly, it doesn’t sacrifice intellectual rigor – it’s not dumbed down.
- Very visual and accessible to students, with the aid of graphics, charts, pull-outs, etc.
- It covers all of the same topics as the Main book and in same order, although with less coverage of IP.
- Errors that crept into the last edition have been corrected.
- The inclusion of problems, especially at the end of the chapters, help students review the materials as they go along.
