Article on Bruton in King’s Law Journal

December 14, 2011

My article ‘Bruton v London & Quadrant Housing Trust: Opening Pandora’s Box’ has just appeared in King’s Law Journal ((2011) 22(3) King’s Law Journal 403 – 413) – click here to go to the Journal’s web-page). The article considers the possible legal bases for the House of Lords decision in this case. Lord Neuberger has recently stated that relativity of title supplies the explanation (Mexfield Housing Co-operative Ltd v Berrisford [2011] UKSC 52, para. 65). London & Quadrant’s possession could be seen as giving them a relative title out of which to carve a lease. Similarly, Mr. Bruton’s own possession could be seen as conferring relative title. This explanation would allow the outcome to be compatible with the traditional idea that the lease is always an estate in land. I argue, however, that Lord Hoffman was careful to reject the idea that Mr. Bruton had any title at all (relative or otherwise).

Podcasts in Higher Education

September 12, 2011

Here are the slides I used in a presentation to colleagues on 1st September 2011 about the use of podcasts in Higher Education. I explained how I have used podcasts in my teaching and why I did so. I have used podcasts to make sure that students can get a firm grasp of the basics as a platform for further and deeper study, reflection and engagement. There is also an impact or open access dimension (as illustrated by the 2010 slides showing the range of countries from which the talks in one of my podcast series have been downloaded). One of the participants asked whether I used Facebook and I showed the participants the Hong Kong Land Law Facebook page. The person who asked the questions was a colleague and an independent musician. He had recently publicised one of his concerts on his Facebook page and attracted an audience of 500.
