Abstract: In 1927 the Palestine Government commissioned us to prepare a statement of the Land Law then in force in Palestine for the use of Officers engage in the work of Land Settlement. The statement then prepared has been given a wider circulation than was, perhaps, at first intended and copies had been made for sale, it has proved useful both to practitioners and students. Circumstances appear to call for a republication of the statements in a more convenient form and this has been made possible with the consent of the government. We have taken the opportunity revising the original statement very thoroughly and adding chapters upon the protection of agricultural tenants expropriation , town planning, Taxation of land, etc. These are matters of interest to the students and practitioners though less relevant to the work of Settlement Officers for whom the original statement was designed We have also inserted a chapter dealing with the Cadastral Survey and the setting forth the law under which Land Settlement operations take place. References to legislations and as far as possible to court decisions , have been brought up to date. Unfortunately no adequate reports of decided cases are published in Palestine . Use have been made of the reports given in Palestine Post for which all persons interested are very grateful, and also of some other sources of information. A Volume of Reports under the editorship of His Honour the Chief Justice has been published and it is to be hoped that the practice of official publication once established will be maintained. Unfortunately the publication of the Volume of Reports took place at too late a date to allow of reference in the text of cases included in the Volume. The most important of the land cases is the Volume of reports has been summarized for references in an Appendix to this book.
