    Hello! I'm hoping someone can advise me on a few land law textbooks. We've been given our reading lists for second year and have been told to choose one of 4 land law textbooks, the latest editions of each. These are:


    1. Mackenzie & Phillips, ‘Textbook on Land law’
    2. Dixon, ‘Modern Land law’
    3. Jackson, Steven & Pearce, ‘Land Law: Textbook series’ Sweet & Maxwell
    4. Jackson ‘Gateway to Land law’ Sweet & Maxwell


    Has anyone used any of these textbooks and have some feedback about them? I've had a look on Amazon and the Mackenzie one has the most positive feedback.

    Thanks

    Yup I used Mackenize & Phillips.
    Really good book. Set out logically with clear explanations. I struggled with land law initially and it was a great reference point and helped me sort out unreg/reg in my head!! .

    Thank you . Think that's the one I'm going to go with, some of the others seem a bit densely written for me.

    Excellent book, well laid out, structured well and easy to understand. Would definitely recommend. However, the only problem was that the book wasn't too detailed and didn't have as many cases. I found the book very easy to understand and it explained and covered the majority of things out very well.

    It was the main textbook for our course alongside Mackenzie & Phillips. Around 60-70% of students used Jackson, Steven & Pearce and the rest used Mackenzie & Phillips or a combination of both. I think it would be best to use one or the other as a supplement as many students did.
