From 2010, the principle subject matter of Property
II will be the law of trusts, though in the second term the law governing
fiduciaries will also be studied in detail. The final part of the course
covers various issues in the philosophy of property.
Teaching and Learning:
From 2010, formal instruction in Property II will consist of 19 two-hour
seminars and 8 one-hour tutorials. There is one seminar each week during
term and four tutorials per term. Students need to prepare for each
seminar and tutorial in advance, primarily by reading the Cases and
Materials, which are prepared by the course co-ordinator. There will
also be an assigned text on the law of trusts which will be the primary
source of reading for tutorials.
Formal assessment in Property II is by final examination in May, which
counts for 100% of the mark in the course. Informal assessment (which
does not count towards the mark in the course) consists of the opportunity
to submit three essays over the course of the year.
