This book is the result of the second edition of the Young Property Lawyers Forum (YPLF), an informal network of young property law researchers. The YPLF aims to bring property law scholars together from around the world and enable them to discuss their work with each other and with more experienced researchers. This book contains the contributions of the second edition of this conference which took place in Maastricht. The different chapters in the book deal with new developments in property law that challenge traditional property law theory. Although they deal with various aspects of property law, such as virtual property, prescription, and EU property law, they all share a vision on how to give shape to the property law of the 21st century.
The Young Property Lawyers Forum (YPLF) continues to form a network for property law researchers around the world with new conferences and publications for both beginning and more advanced scholars.
