Favourite Cases: Parker v British Airways Board – Article by Natalie Pratt

In this edition of Favourite Cases, Natalie Pratt tells the story of Parker v British Airways Board [1982] QB 1004.

Natalie says: “ I choose Parker as my favourite case for three reasons. First, as an academic property lawyer by background, any case that acknowledges theoretical principles, such as the relativity of title applied in Parker, will be a hit with me. Second, any decision in which a judge goes to the trouble of setting out an accessible statement of the relevant guiding principles, especially where no such statement exists elsewhere, is always welcome. Third, Parker serves as a useful tool when assessing whether finders really are keepers – a question which arises in everyday life, and not just before the courts”
