Written by a recognized expert on community property and family law issues in California, Grace Ganz Blumberg's comprehensive casebook prepares students for the California bar examination and equips them for California practice in the areas of divorce, decedents--estates, and debtor-creditor law. Community Property in California carefully balances cases, notes, questions, and problems for student comprehension. Because community property is a relatively narrow subject involving the interplay of state legislation and case law, the casebook is structured to encourage students to develop and refine their analytic skills and to enable professors to guide their students in doing so. Comparative text puts California law into context by including references to the Uniform Marital Property Act and the marital property chapter of the American Law Institute's Principles of the Law of Family Dissolution. Key Features: Recent developments in the law of transmutation including In re Marriage of Valli, which extended the reach of the transmutation statutes to spousal transactions with third parties, overruling prior case law. Resolution of the good-faith issue in putative spouse doctrine: A putative spouse need only have a subjective good faith belief that she is married. Ceja v. Rudolph & Sletten, Inc. Update on the constitutional right of same-sex couples to marry. Developments in judicial enforcement of the statutory disclosure rules at divorce.

Peace-building in a number of contemporary contexts involves fragile states, influential customary systems and histories of land conflict arising from mass population displacement. This book is a timely response to the increased international focus on peace-building problems arising from population displacement and post-conflict state fragility. It considers the relationship between property and resilient customary systems in conflict-affected East Timor. The chapters include micro-studies of customary land and population displacement during the periods of Portuguese colonization and Indonesian military occupation. There is also analysis of the development of laws relating to customary land in independent East Timor (Timor Leste). The book fills a gap in socio-legal literature on property, custom and peace-building and is of interest to property scholars, anthropologists, and academics and practitioners in the emerging field of peace and conflict studies.

Property Law: Practice, Problems, and Perspectives, Second Edition is a truly contemporary 1L Property text. This book is distinguished by its extraordinarily clear and engaging writing, and by the degree to which the authors make the material accessible and enjoyable to students in this foundational course. The authors embrace the task of training lawyers, and as a result, their text regularly asks students to answer questions and solve problems from the perspective of attorneys. The authors delve fully into legal doctrine and address profound policy issues in a direct and understandable manner, drawing upon an outstanding range of case opinions, including those from seminal cases as well those from recent and provocative disputes. The text uses a two-color design and includes a wonderful selection of photographs. Important documents useful to teaching particular cases and material are reproduced throughout. Property Law: Practice, Problems, and Perspectives is more than just a text. It incorporates a truly unique online simulation that features practice-ready materials and professionally-produced, author-scripted videos that illuminate property law issues and disputes. The text regularly references documents used in practice, which are available to students in the simulation. New to the Second Edition: Revised and updated case opinions and textual discussion. For example: The section addressing the Fair Housing Act now includes a discussion of disparate impact litigation after Texas Dept. of Housing and Community Affairs v. Inclusive Communities Project, Inc. The chapter devoted to takings law now includes summaries of Horne v. Dept. of Agriculture and Murr v. Wisconsin. New and sometimes startling images, such as a subdivision-marketing poster from San Diego in 1915 that offers a frightening example of pervasive discriminatory housing practices that existed prior to the Fair Housing Act. Enjoyable new problems drawn from reported case opinions. For example, the problem of “The Obstinate Ex,” involving a couple who live together in a home owned individually by one of them. When that person breaks off the relationship, the other refuses to move out, claiming an interest in the property. Professors and students will benefit from: A blend of property doctrine and real-world practice, featuring a stimulating, challenging presentation that is also transparent. The book retains the subtlety of the classic texts but comments explicitly on the overlapping elements to ensure that students can see all the connections among legal doctrines. A unique interactive element that teaches students how to read a land survey, helping them understand the issues presented by the text in case opinions and problems. The transactional perspective adopted by the authors in relevant chapters, such as real estate transactions and landlord/tenant law. A unique border along the edge of the text in the chapter on the real property transaction, allowing students to place key concepts and doctrinal material in the context of phases of the transaction. A robust electronic version of the casebook, along with online videos and practice-ready materials. A book that is the ideal text for a four-unit course, but includes ample coverage permitting a professor to construct a five- or six-unit course.
