The purpose of this casebook is to provide an elementary reader of case law and materials for a first course in property law.
The layout and structure of case reports and legislation are discussed and explained, and students are provided with practical hints and advice regarding the reading of cases and legislation. One case is reproduced in full and used as an example of how cases should be analysed and read. Other cases are reproduced selectively to allow students to develop and exercise their skills in the analysis and reading of cases.
The 8th edition of Law of Property Casebook for Students/Sakereg Vonnisbundel vir Studente has been updated with new cases until July 2015. The inclusion of cases on constitutional law illustrates the interplay between the common law, constitutional law and legal reform.
The Casebook should be used together with Van der Walt and Pienaar’s Introduction to the Law of Property (7th edition) and Inleiding tot die Sakereg (7de uitgawe), but references to other textbooks have been included.
