Future Interest and Estates Study Aids

Our students have been going through a spate of midterm exams in Property recently.  Future interests, estates, and RAP are as perplexing for current students as they were to all of us in law school.  I thought it might be helpful to list some of the study aids that I stock in my library to help students in these areas:

  • A Student's Guide to Estates in Land and Future Intersts (Laurence and Minzner, LEXIS)
  • A Student's Guide to the Rule Against Perpetuities (Schwartz, LEXIS)
  • Estates in Land and Future Interests (Makdisi and Bogart, Aspen)
  • Workbook on Estates and Future Interests (Coletta, Thomson/West)
  • Estates in Land and Future Interests (Edwards, Aspen)
  • A Possessory Estates and Future Interests Primer (Wendel, Thomson/West)
  • Gilbert Law Summaries: Future Interests and Perpetuities (Dukeminier, Thomson/BarBri)
  • Gilbert Law School Legends on Audio CD (Carpenter, Thomson/BarBri)
  • Law in a Flash: Future Interests (Aspen/Emanuel)

When I was studying for the day-long conveyancing exam for the bar in England/Wales, I asked one of our residential conveyancing legal staff what book would be best for preparing for the future interests, estates, and RAP portion of the exam.  He blinked at me. In a surprised voice, he asked if Americans still learned all of those things.  When I told him that it was a regular part of every law school property course, he laughed and said that the U.K. abolished all of those intricacies in the 1840's!  (Amy Jarmon)
