School: I have a bad feeling about this...

Well, my Property exam is in about 8 hours. Time to sleep. This one's going to be a thinker, that's for sure. Unlike a class like Torts or Criminal Law, where there are always neat little tests full of elements to shove everything into, Property is like a giant Katamari Damacy ball of craziness.

For example, you learn about eminent domain. But how about how eminent domain relates to someone's appurtenant easement that's adjoining the property you just condemned? Or say you know about mortgages. But how do those mortgages interact with the joint tenancy this husband and wife have formed, and what if the husband forged the wife's signature on the mortgage?

Subletting, the Fair Housing Act, adverse possession, copyrights, real covenants...quite a disparate bunch of concepts. Here we go!
