law of property:
(17c)

1. The category of law dealing with proprietary rights in rem, such as personal servitudes, predial servitudes, and rights of real security.  *  It is one of the three departments into which civil law was traditionally divided: persons, property, and modes of acquiring property (obligations).  In modern civil codes that follow the model of the German Civil Code, civil law is divided into five books: general principles, obligations, family law, property, and succession. [1]

Other §§ of Roman Civil Law:

Law of Obligations – the category of law dealing with the modes of acquiring property in personam (relating to persons), particularly relations between the obligor and the obligee.

Law of Status – the category of law dealing with personal or nonproprietary rights, whether in rem (relating to “things”) or in personam (relating to persons).
