Amcanion cyffredinol

Land Law is a compulsory module in the LLB programme. The aim of this module is to enable students to state and apply the rules of English and Welsh land law dealt with in the course accurately and relevantly. Students will be expected to develop a critical understanding of the key concepts of English and Welsh land law, particularly the distinctions – and the resulting consequences of the distinctions – between legal and equitable rights, personal and proprietary interests and registered and unregistered land. Students will be required to develop a critical appreciation of the particular circumstances – political, social, cultural and financial – in which English and Welsh land law has developed, particularly in relation to the major property legislation of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and in relation to substantive matters including the ownership of family property, the regulation of leases and the law of mortgages. Students will also be expected to develop a critical understanding of the actual and potential impact of human rights law and should have the ability to compare and contrast English and Welsh land law accurately and relevantly with the equivalent areas of any other legal system where relevant.
