Summary

My project aims to address a fundamental question in personal property law: how, and why, do we acquire new rights in property? The thesis explores the current scope of the law relating to 'original' modes of acquisition of proprietary rights in personal property (such as manufacturing a new item of property from materials owned by another). The project aims both to clarify the law in this area, and to ask whether the law has good reason to take the shape that it currently does.
