432 - Real Property: Selected Topics (3 hours)*
This seminar will take a comparative approach to property law by focusing on one very specific type of property—cemeteries—and one specific type of property interest—burial rights. The law of the United States, the United Kingdom, and various civil law countries will be examined and compared. This course will also include a significant historical component that focuses on the common foundation of all of these traditions—Roman law and Christian doctrine and custom.
* This course may be offered for 2 hours during some years.
