Regulation and the morphology of property This special issue has arisen from a conference held in Cambridge in May 2018, hosted by the Cambridge Centre for Property Law, concerning regulation of property. This conference drew together scholars from a wide range of perspectives, including property theorists, black letter land lawyers, socio-legal specialists and environmental lawyers, as well as practitioners. The topics under discussion ranged from explanations of the environmental consequences of private and state-based water rights in Mono Lake in California (Ryan, 2019), to the technical rules of landlord and tenant law (Odinet, 2019) and of the mortgage contract (Amodu, 2018). And yet underpinning all of these contributions was an understanding that the topic under consideration was “property”. This term, however, is one which, fairly obviously, means different things to different people. Indeed, the idea that when we speak of property we mean much more than the technical rules of land law was the topic of a paper in the conference itself.
