Book Review: Restatement of the Law of Property, 32 Illinois Law Review 509 (1937)
These two latest volumes of restatement are part of a projected five-volume clarification of the law of property. Into their making have gone eight years of labor in the elaborate routine of the American Law Institute and "close to $150,000." Most of the work was done by or under the supervision of Professor Richard R. Powell, the present Reporter; Dean Harry A. Bigelow was Reporter for the first two and a half years and Professor W. Barton Leach is responsible for Chapter 15 (Statutes of Limitation). A small group of distinguished advisers contributed collectively some 28 months of work.
