This subject enables senior law students to specialise and internationalise their existing knowledge of property law by thinking deeply, creatively and practically about some of the greatest challenges of our time: property in: human tissue, animals, water, carbon, a home, celebrity status and government acquisitions and redistribution of property. The subject comprises two components. First, students analyse controversial and recent cases of the superior courts of Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States that deal with the development and innovation of property law. Second, students debate leading property theories that examine the ethical, moral, economic and environmental aspects of property in a global context. This combination of judicial and jurisprudential sources from around the world offers students the knowledge and skills to respond to questions of practical import concerning the future direction of property law at both domestic and international levels.
