Property Law Review is Thomson Reuters’ newest journal, offering multiple perspectives on the law of real and personal property with national and/or international implications.
This high calibre journal publishes articles, notes, comments and reviews dealing with fundamental questions in property law, other than in relation to intellectual property. It welcomes multiple perspectives, ranging across analytical, theoretical, empirical and comparative approaches, analysis of recent developments, exploration of issues of policy and proposals for law reform.
The three General Editors, Professor Brendan Edgeworth, Dr Lyria Bennett Moses and Ms Cathy Sherry, bring complementary fields of expertise to the journal. Together with the Editorial Board of distinguished academics and practitioners from Australia and around the world, they are establishing a publication that is without international equivalent.
Property law is not a simple matter of land law and conveyancing; property law practitioners are increasingly involved in commercial project management and complex financial structures while at the same time the teaching of property law in universities is under review as part of the general reconsideration of the Priestley 11 model. The relevance of the journal to both academia and practice was eloquently expressed in the inaugural editorial as well as by Sir Anthony Mason at the launch event in February this year.
To date, subscribers have seen pieces ranging from Professor Singer’s article on property law and the US sub-prime mortgage crisis to the question of property in sperm; from water management rights in Australia to the debate about whether an email account is actually property. The final part of the first volume is currently in preparation.
Property Law Review offers a unique combination of intellectual rigour and commercial relevance to academics researching and teaching the law of property in its many and varied manifestations. It is also of value to commercial litigators and advisors involved in large-scale commercial transactions that can be caught up in litigation arising from the complexity of property law.
Online, Property Law Review features access to the growing backset from Volume 1, 2011, with links to judgments, legislation and other online publications, while allowing for individual articles to be downloaded in PDF format or received via RSS feed. In hard copy, this journal comprises three parts per volume each year.
