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 doctrine of estates in land, takings, concurrent ownership, landlord-tenant relations, findings, future interests, covenants, easements, licenses, adverse possession, aboriginal title and intellectual property are among the other topics which may be covered.
