Prof. Odinet Co-Authors Casebook on American Property Law

American Property Law Casebook

OU Law Professor Chris Odinet, together with three other nationally recognized legal scholars, has co-authored one of the leading casebooks on property law used in American legal education, American Property Law (West Publishing Company, 7th ed. 2019).

Providing a traditional approach to property law, the book introduces law students to a broad spectrum of material traditionally covered in a first-year property course and establishes a foundation for upper-level courses like trusts and estates, real estate finance, mortgages, land-use planning and zoning, secured transactions, and others. The book combines a set of traditional legal materials drawn from state and federal court decisions and statutes, with historical, economics, and social science materials designed to add important perspective to the law students’ appreciation of property rights in the American legal system.

The 7th edition features new cases and expanded discussions involving the financing of property transactions, servitudes, and Fifth Amendment takings. It also includes refreshed charts and tables. The notes and comments have been appropriately updated to include recent trends, cases, and novel issues.
