Cambridge Centre for Property Law

 

Property law does not exist in a vacuum and this research stream combines the legal with the practical, with special focus on the environmental and social impact of the way land ownership is organised.

Members of the Centre have expertise in environmental regulation of land use and the development of environmental policy. A particular speciality concerns the constitutional and legal implications of indigenous land issues and the rights of peoples to sovereignty and enjoyment of territory.
