    Kevin Gray has suggested that the teaching of property law has a 'peculiarly important -perhaps even central -role' in forming the mindset not just of the law student, but also of the lawyer, and in some degree, of the thoughtful and responsible citizen'.1 This is due to the 'tremendously structural features'2 that it implants in the mind of the student, including 'rigour of thought and analysis, the capacity for abstract manipulation of complex ideas and some sense of the workability of entire bodies of statutory machinery'.3 It is thus unsurprising that Gray asserts that '[i]t is in property law that consciously or unconsciously the student learns a basic competence in a number of skills which are of immense importance in later life'
