#11.2 Property Law, Pt. 2

We are back with the second part of our property law episode. This time, my guest of the first part – Bram Akkermans – joined me to interview a true expert of property law.

Dr. Jill Robbie is a Lecturer in Private Law at Glasgow University. She did her PhD on Water Rights and was at the moment of recording in Louisiana, helping to research a better property rights system. Did you know that water is seen as a “public thing” over there? Find out what this means in this month’s episode. You can also find Jill’s Twitter here.

Long story short: Enjoy this episode!

#11 Property Law, Pt. 1

This is part 1 of this episode. Part 2 will be released on 17th May 2018.

After months of absence from the area of private law, we finally managed to record another episode on it. In this episode, Bram Akkermans and I talk about property law. We pick up from where we left off in #1 What is Law?: Are animals really objects of property and if so, why? From land to movables: we cover it (almost) all.

Bram Akkermans is Associate Professor of European Private Law at Maastricht University and also holds a Tijdschrift voor Privaatrecht Visiting Chair at the KU Leuven. He is also Associate Director of the Maastricht European Private Law Institute.

Bram and I cover

  • why property law is essential to contemporary society.
  • what categories of property there are,
  • William the Conqueror and the feudal system,
  • the origins of the term “landlord”,
  • mortgages, hypotheek, and use rights,
  • how digital developments disrupt the idea of property,
  • sustainability and property,
  • the divide of public and private law,
  • and much more.
