The purpose of this book is to provide a first introduction for an elementary course in property law. Introduction to Property Law was written specifically for students in such a first course on the subject, and therefore the contents are restricted to what the authors regard as essential for these students. Footnotes have not been used for the same reason; in an introductory course the emphasis should arguably fall on understanding basic concepts and principles, rather than on further sources and materials. However, extensive use is made of examples from case law. Introduction to Property Law attempts to give a picture of property law in the new constitutional system, and therefore a few chapters on the constitutional property clause and land reform have been included. This new edition is consequently also published as part of Juta's Property Law Library, which is aimed as a series to illustrate the interplay between the common law, the constitution and legal reform in a constitutional system. As an introduction, the book is different from the other volumes in the series in that it is specifically aimed at students.
