Property Policy Book

Postby PSLaplace » Tue Mar 23, 2010 4:26 pm

My Property professor is a policy nut. He seems to think that even established BLL can be circumvented with a strong enough policy argument, and he expects as much on his exam. Anyone have any recommendations for a Property policy book?

To the best of my knowledge, no one has ever been able to post a link the policy books. I'm beginning to think NYU1L made that shit up.

Hint: read your prof's law review articles.

Understanding Property contains good policy rationale for most areas of property.

I'm sure policy books exist, but in my experience NYU1L's article was a drastic exaggeration of the level of policy knowledge needed. He made it sound like you have to come up w/brilliant novel arguments on the exam. Really all you have to do is to use the methods you learned in class & regurgitate some from class discussion.

True

For Civ Pro, I just plan to write "Judicial Economy" and "Fairness" a lot.
