Property Law, geared towards an audience of first year law students

Treatises and Hornbooks

Treatises and hornbooks offer in-depth explanations about an area of law. Treatises can span for several volumes, and authoritaively cover a legal topic in detail. This detail includes references to many primary sources. Hornbooks are similar to treatises, but are generally condensed to one volume. Both can be used to gain a greater understanding of the law, but should be cited in court documents very infrequently, if ever.
