This subject provides students with a thorough introduction to the history and context
of contemporary land law in Australia. The subject uses these foundations to enable
students to build a core of knowledge of key principles of land law and promotes the
development of skills to find, interpret and apply the statute and case law that underpins
these principles. The subject introduces property as a theoretical concept, and covers
principles including the meaning and classification of 'land' within Australian law;
the doctrines of tenure and estates; the impact of native title and the Property Law
Act 1974 (Qld) on these doctrines; the creation and assertion of equitable and legal
interests in land; co-ownership of land; and an introduction to systems of registration
of interests in land. This subject lays a foundation for LA2016 (Land Law 2), LA3013
