Statutory Interpretation is specifically designed to equip students with the statutory interpretation skills they need in practice. The structure of this book is aligned with the length of a typical semester, and in addition to research and analysis of statutory interpretation rules and principles, it provides case scenarios and application exercises. Chapter 14 has been designed as a consolidating chapter to which readers will repeatedly refer. It contains a Statutory Interpretation Index (SII1) synthesising the book's rules of statutory interpretation, then embedding these in a set of four practical exercises. Statutory Interpretation is also available as an e-book.
