Prop2 Class 1 – Adverse Possession Theory

January 15th, 2013

Hello everyone and welcome to Property II.

Today we will cover property rights created through discovery or conquest with the case of Johnson v. M’Intosh.

During class, I will type in real time the lecture notes on this document.

In addition, I encourage each of you to post comments to our live-chat. You can use your real name or a madeup name if you prefer.

Here is a map of the property in Van Valkenburg v. Lutz.

Here is the Van Valkenburg Coat of Arms:
