Jan Van Sickle, P.L.S.
It is fair to say that the body of common law is more comprehensive than statute law, it covers more ground. Therefore it is probable that a practicing surveyor will find more frequent recourse to common law. Unfortunately common law is not as conveniently documented, as is statute law. Luckily it is comprised of the principles established from cases that have been submitted by parties to legal actions so one way to discover their element is to study those cases. It is often through them that principles currently in force have been built.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
