But what if land law were taught differently? What if land law, rather than representing an archaic and irrelevant list of rules were viewed through a different prism?
I confess to having practised in land law (property and commercial law and some native title) for some 16 years, and to having taught it since 2004. But in all those years of experience, it is clear to me that this subject remains central to our understanding of the common law. The subject lies at the intersection of law and sustainability - sustainability of governance, of society and culture, of the economy and of the environment.
