BLAW 1002

An intensive theory course dealing with the principles that govern creation and transfer of various types of interests in land in Ontario. The course presents an historical account of the principles from their early beginnings, since Ontario's represent system of land law represents a complex and highly technical set of rules evolved from the medieval feudal system of landholding in England, and they defy understanding without some appreciation of the historical development. The system does offer the advantage of a great variety of types of rights in land that may be owned by a person, and for this reason much of this course is devoted to definition and classification of such interests.
