This section of this course is offered on campus, for students who can attend in person. This course will meet 3 times a week, once in-person (Mon), once via audio-visual conference (Tues), and one meeting will be hybrid, rotating between AV conferences and in-class meetings (Wed). In order to safeguard the health and safety of students, there is a possibility that all sections of this class will convert to a remote format for all or part of the term. All students must meet or exceed the tech requirements for enrolment in University of Toronto courses, which can be found here [https://www.viceprovoststudents.utoronto.ca/students/tech-requirements-online-learning/]

The purpose of the course is to introduce students to the concepts that lawyers use in dealing with competing interests in land, chattels and other forms of wealth. The concept of "property" is examined as are the concepts of possession and ownership, and the consequences flowing from these concepts. Adverse possession, finders, bailment, gift, estates, easements, appropriation of personality, and intellectual property are among the other topics which may be covered.
