Property (21017). 4 units. This course will study the laws of property, its objectives and its institutions. It will investigate how property rights and institutions affect resources, prosperity, fairness, freedom, community, and the sometimes conflicting interests of individuals, groups, and government, in specific applications such as land, possessions, environmental resources, the family, and the self. It will cover issues such as acquisition, exclusion, trespass and nuisance, transfer, estates and future interests, covenants and easements, landlord-tenant and housing law, and compensation for government takings of property. Attention will be paid, in largely equal doses, to both the legal doctrine and its underlying socioeconomic, political, and moral rationales. Self-scheduled examination. T. Zhang.
