This postgraduate Australian Property Law unit should prove indispensable for those wishing to study the intricacies of the legal system and pursue a future career in property law. Students who successfully negotiate this demanding unit will be able to understand what the notion of property means and how the relationship between persons and proprietary interests differs from other legal relationships.
Students will also be able to analyse and identify the major categories of proprietary interests that exist in both real and personal property, and apply the rules that govern the creation of proprietary interests at law and in equity. For those who aren’t set on a particular career yet, the unit also has a number of benefits in terms of skill sets that can be applied more generally.
Analytical skills, as well as the ability to problem solve, will be refined and developed through the application of theory to resolve actual case studies.
