This is a core course in the Bachelor of Laws program. [Together with LAW2223 Property and Trusts B] it is approved by the Legal Practitioners Admissions Board (Qld) and the Chief Justice of Queensland as meeting the property area of knowledge under the Supreme Court (Admission) Rules 2004 (Qld) and therefore deals with elements of property, specifically: meaning and purposes of the concept of property; possession, seisin and title; nature and type (i.e. fragmentation) of proprietary interests; creation and enforceability of proprietary interests; legal and equitable remedies; statutory schemes of registration; and acquisition and disposal of proprietary interests.
Possession and transfer of property of all types has been and continues to be a source of wealth and the primary activity of commercial and private endeavour. The legal rules that determine how these transactions take place are vital for ensuring stability. This course is designed to introduce students to the concepts of property and basic principles of property law. Students will gain an awareness of concepts of real and personal property and principles governing the possession, creation and transfer of interests in property, tenures and estates in co-ownership. The recognition of native title and subsequent case law and legislation will be examined, as will concepts of Crown land.
