Product Description

Review

Land Law is an excellent guide to real property law... a vital text for students. (Student Law Journal, February 2012)

Written in a coherent style, logically arranged with invaluable summaries at the start of each chapter. (Student Law Journal, February 2012)

The substantive text is also excellent with the authors referring the reader, where appropriate, to relevant statutes, cases and other parts of the text: this saves considerable time. (Student Law Journal, February 2012)

About the Author

Kevin Gray is Dean of Trinity College, Cambridge and a Professor of Law in the University of Cambridge and the National University of Singapore. Susan Francis Gray is a Solicitor of the Senior Courts, and a former Assistant Land Registrar at HM Land Registry.

I found this book detailed to the extent that I needed for studying for my law exams. It gave quite a few examples of how the writing in the text would apply/has applied to a real situation. It clarified many aspects of Land Law I was not sure about. When I was not sure about a meaning of a legal term, the book would clarify everything within minutes. It's a good reference book as well and the writing is in good, clear english. I recommend it.

I brought this book when I was studying land law last year when at the time I was probably going to get a 3rd in the unit because I found all other land law books so difficult to understand.
This book is simplified but with enough depth to cover it perfectly and it demonstrates case law and statutory authority very clearly. I read this a month before my exam and went up two grades as I suddenly understood everything.
This book is honestly one of the best law books I have ever read, and the chapters are so well structured that they even demonstrate to you how best to view that legal problems, which is very good for problems and essay questions.
If I were to start my course again I would but this book and read it before lectures as you can't get anything clearer.

I am currently studying for a Law degree, like many others considering this book. Land Law is a compulsory topic for a qualifying law degree, so unfortunately you don't have the choice of not studying it! Unless your course comes with a textbook attached, it can be difficult to decide which book to choose. I can only implore you to avoid this textbook.

Topics in this book are discussed without being introduced. There is no sense that there is a natural order that the contents follow. It appears haphazard, rather than following a line of inquiry. Particularly from a student's point of view, this makes it difficult to understand and apply what you learn from this book; structure is sorely missing. It will not help in answering essays or problem questions, the two methods of assessment the law society prefers.

Furthermore, concepts that are actually fairly simple are rendered impossible to understand due to the obscure language the authors decide to employ. Yes, law is a difficult subject, but that doesn't mean that the language needs to be so complex. At the end of each sentence you're not sure what the sentence has said, at the end of each chapter you're not sure exactly what you've learnt.

A minor point to note is that my copy came with pages 289-316 missing. I'm not entirely sure whether this is a blessing or a curse.

Overall, I would not recommend this for some who, like myself, is new to Land Law. It may well be a useful reference once you have learnt this area of law, however for students, it's simply too difficult to see the woods for the trees. Ironic, considering the cover picture.

Very useful book, packed with additional (and relevant!) details, very concise and is good to check and reinforce your knowledge/understanding for undergraduate Land Law. However, this book alone may be too concise to learn from. Another text book (e.g. the red Gray & Gray/McFarlane/Dixon) and/or lecture notes should be used as this book may be difficult to understand in some areas. I used this book in addition to McFarlane's book for undergraduate law.

PROS:-
(a) useful for getting a structure & overview to the topic you're trying to learn,
(b) packs in a lot of detail concisely and so is good for referencing,
(c) is focused and does not beat around the bush,
(d) this book will give you additional details/topics that aren't in the main text books (particularly if not using red Gray & Gray) - e.g. subrogation & some useful adverse possession details - such as that a tenant adversely possesses for the benefit of the landlord.
(e) this may be more advantageous to the red Gray & Gray as this is more up to date.

CONS:-
(a) May be too concise to learn from.
(b) Not sufficient to be solely relied on.
***In regard to many negative comments, this is not a text book that should solely be relied on in an undergraduate Land Law course.*** This is a core text and should be used accordingly. This book is, by itself, insufficient.

Nevertheless, due to the good things about the book that I have stated, i would recommend it as a great addition to a textbook.

too difficult to understand i don't know why anyone would chose this as a core textbook!
If you are an expert on land law, then this is great, but if you have no idea about land law, then choose a different book!

I brought this book alongside the other recommended text from my couse by 'Chapelle'. Chapelle was designed to be less intense whilst Gray & Gray had much more detail. So to start off with I began with Chapelle's book and was left confused, and giving up the will to live! However the next day I decided to look at Gray & Gray, worried it would baffle me more as it's reputation of being more detailed lingered in the back of my head - well I was very happily surprised to read and understand all that was being said. Gray & Gray explain in a very concise and well written way, without waffle and trying to over do the elaborate writing that I felt Chapelle was guilty of.

Highly recommend for any law student and if there is a choice between this & Chapelle's - I'd recommend this a hundred times over!
