my question is, does tort law provide an adequate protection for interests in land?

So you're going to have to survey the various torts relating to land, what protections they afford, what protections they don't afford, and then discuss and weigh up the sufficiency.

You'll need to consider:

Trespass
Nuisance
The rule in Rylands v Fletcher

In order to get top marks you'll need to consider a range of interests in land, too: not just the obvious ones of the freehold and leasehold, but also licences and easements, profits a prendre and so forth.

You will also need to show an awareness of the protections for these interests which exist apart from the law of tort - since tort merely needs to fill in teh gaps, not occupy the entire field.

Hope this gives you a few useful pointers. Good luck with it.
