Course Outline: This course covers the basics of property law. We will examine what makes property rights distinctive; how property rights are created, transferred, and destroyed; and what the powers and duties of property owners are. This course will serve as a foundation for a variety of upper-division courses, including land use, environmental law, intellectual property, and commercial law.

***As noted on the course syllabus, e-books are an electronic source and thus are not permitted during the final exam; therefore, students should ensure that they do not purchase an e-book only version of the casebook or required supplement book.***

Course Notes: (Hybrid)  The UH registration system instruction mode for this course is listed in parenthesis. After student registration in November, there may be instruction mode changes to this course up through Jan. 5th, 2022, but notice of such changes will be sent to then-registered students. Hybrid means that some of the weekly class sessions are virtual, and some are face-to-face. By definition, the hybrid instruction mode only applies to a course that meets two or more times a week. The instructor’s syllabus should indicate which regular days are virtual and which are face-to-face. A physical classroom may be assigned for the virtual class sessions to give students a location in the Law Center to join them. If the course has a final examination, it will be conducted in a classroom in face-to-face mode requiring your physical presence. Other assessment, such as a mid-term exam, may also be in a classroom.
