Some Sources of Property Law

Historically property law has been judge-made law. In other words, the rules and doctrines of property law emerged and evolve as judges make decisions in private litigation.

The various Restatements of Property distill the concepts and rules articulated in property decisions and present them in an conceptually organized format. Besides stating rules and principles, the Restatement also includes lengthy comments explaining those rules and principles as well as examples to illustrate their application.

Students should bear in mind that the Restatements in themselves have no precedential value, although they can acquire precedential value to the extent that courts recognize and adopt particular provisions.
