Seems like the casebooks can be all over the place and having a horn book like this was nice.

As you may already know, Dukeminier (the author of this supplement) is the author of the premier textbook on Property, used by 90% of law schools in the country. If that right there doesn't convince you that this supplement is AWESOME, let me further explain. This book is a MUST HAVE for any student looking to fully understand the concepts of Property Law. It provides concise explanations of the rules derived from the cases in the casebook, and gives WONDERFUL charts and graphs to show the relationship of one concept to another (like future interests, equitable servitudes and easements, etc.). Additionally, he provides examples and explanations of how to get to the answers and the answers themselves. I think I would've lost my mind in Property if it weren't for this book, and with this book, you will not need to invest in any other supplements. Trust me on this one...this book is essential.

As other reviewers have mentioned, Dukeminier's textbook is the most common book for property, leading one to believe that his outline should be a natural choice.

In light of how much I pay for law school tuition, I decided to get some insurance by purchasing Gilbert's and Emanuel's outlines for most classes, and use the best of each for my course work.

As a side effect of that, I was able to do a comparison between the two and I was surprised that Emanuel's consistently gave deeper and broader treatment of subjects, especially in Property and Contracts.

Although Duke's outline is certainly useful, I strongly believe that you can do better with Emanuel's, which is also keyed to Duke's textbook.

I felt this was a great reference tool for my 1L property class, more concise than the Treatise, better black letter than the case briefs. Would recommend it as help with a very heavy subject.

Absolutely beautiful book.

My property professor covered about 1,100 pages of Dukeminier's textbook this semester, and she kept raving about how well the textbook was written and how she loved it.

Now, studying for the final, I cannot imagine a better book to review/re-learn some of this stuff.

Even if you didn't read his textbook, he covers literally EVERYTHING of importance. And, he has a handy section in the front that tells you what pages to focus on, depending on what textbook you read.

I love you Mr. Dukeminier, keep up the good work.

Gilbert Law Summaries: Property is one of the better Gilbert commercial outlines.

My property professor did not use Dukeminier's textbook, yet, this outline still seemed to flow pretty well chronologically with what we were studying. This was really helpful. I imagine that if your professor uses Dukeminier's textbook this resource would be even more invaluable.

Like any other Gilbert's this outline has a TON of information. Much much more information than you will likely cover in your class. And, as always, the outline is fairly specific in its coverage. It lists all of the exceptions to the exceptions which will likely bog you down if you do not have a good understanding of the general framework of the property law you are studying. And which will likely not be tested on your exams...but they are always good to know.

All-in-all I used this book to supplement my studies and found that it covered everything I needed and more. I didn't find any inconsistencies or conflicts with anything my professor said. Too bad property law in itself is killer.

Format: Hardcover
Despite the opinions of other reviewers on this site, this is not a well written book. I am speaking of the Future Interests section in particular.

In order explain concepts, the book uses terms that are defined later in the chapter, and simply gives examples without clarifying.

I think the authors are capable of explaining these concepts in an understandable way, but fail to do so. This is evident once you use the Gilberts outline written by Dukeminier, where concepts are well defined. Perhaps this is a ploy to sell more Gilberts. Regardless, the textbook leaves much to be desired.

You should definitely get this if you are using Dukeminier's case book. The outline is written by Dukeminier, and lays everything out in a way that is much easier to study.

Easily the best casebook I have had yet. The cases are interesting and easy to follow. The authors have made a shocking break with casebook tradition and have included notes which clarify and enlighten, rather than bewilder and confuse. Occasional pictures relating to cases are also included. Always a joyful surprise when faced with the evening's herculean reading assignment to get a whole page gratis! Admittedly, the professor doesn't come with the book, but this book definitely takes you half the way towards loving property.
