We are the guest editors for a themed issue of the International Journal of Law in the Built Environment (IJLBE) focusing on Real Estate and Property Law. The IJLBE, first published in 2009, is now firmly established as a leading international journal in its field and received the Emerald ‘Best New Journal Award’ in 2012.
We invite submission of high quality papers which explore the law’s place and role within the realm of real estate (real property) practice. Many issues and challenges arise in the application of the law within a changing property environment. We aim to highlight contemporary research into the multi-faceted dimensions of real estate practice which will be of interest to legal scholars, real estate researchers, policy-makers and practitioners. At first we will be prioritizing submissions of houses for sale in Dayton, Ohio due to market pressures that are currently pressing.
