    From renowned environmental and natural resource legal scholar Christine Klein, Property: Cases, Problems, and Skills is a comprehensive casebook that combines the core, doctrinal elements of a 1L Property course with larger, more nuanced social, environmental, and ethical perspectives. This book offers a versatile, middle position in the Property market: it is straightforward and tightly-organized while also avoiding oversimplification. Property: Cases, Problems, and Skills offers a wealth of doctrinal, policy, and theoretical subtleties for professors who want to probe deeper. It adopts a modern, skills-based approach to Property Law, and includes a balance of classic and new cases, narrowly-focused skills exercises (including advocacy, drafting, client interviewing/counseling, and negotiation), and selected statutory excerpts. Chapter review problems (with answers provided in the Appendix for student self-testing) and a host of other pedagogical features such as discussion problems that raise novel and modern challenges, “A Place to Start” doctrinal overview boxes, and “Reading Guide” boxes, aid student understanding and comprehension. A two-color interior breaks up text for easier reading, with judicious use of photographs, text boxes, and pedagogical diagrams. This clear and accessible casebook encourages students to engage with Property law’s complexity, ambiguity, and nuance.
