Property Law involves the study of the creation and allocation of rights to resources in varied forms. These resources include real property (land and things permanently attached to land such as houses or other structures). Property law also addresses rights to tangible personal property (such as books or furniture) and intangible personal property (such as author or investor's rights to control use of his creation, or shares in a company.) The major goal of the course is to familiarize students with the foundations and norms of both historic Property Law formulations and contemporary Property Law concepts. Required for graduation. Offered beginning Spring 2013.
