The essays in this collection consider the fundamental concepts of property and obligations in law. Ideas of property and of obligations are central, organising concepts within law but are nevertheless liable to fragmentation and esoteric development when applied in particular contexts. The contributors examine this phenomenon in three ways. First, in the interaction of land law, housing law and family law to the acquisition of rights in the home. Secondly, by considering how human rights norms will impact on the development of property and obligations law in the future. Thirdly, by reconsidering the historical development of many of these notions in English law. What emerges is an understanding that when the concepts of property and obligations are uprooted from their conceptual soil, they take on very different characteristics.
