LA TROBE UNIVERSITY - Statutory Interpretation: LAW5SIN
UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY - Interpretation: LAWS5143

Product Description

In his foreword, the Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG states that "interpretation constitutes the key that unlocks the door to the meaning of law." Today's legal practice increasingly involves consideration of a statute, private instrument or judgment. Prepare for this skill with a firm theoretical and practical understanding of interpretation as provided by this work.

Interpretation and Use of Legal Sources – The Laws of Australia provides a comprehensive account of the Australian law of interpretation. It covers interpretation in public law, private law and international law, as well as the interpretation of case law. This unique treatment of interpretation across all areas of the law makes this book an invaluable resource for practitioners and students alike.

The Hon Dyson Heydon has described this work as "one of a small handful of outstandingly able books on Australian law produced so far this century". He concludes that "it really does need to be on every lawyer's shelves".

The text covers:

  • constitutional interpretation;
  • statutory interpretation;
  • interpretation of subordinate legislation;
  • interpretation of international law;
  • interpretation of private law documents generally;
  • interpretation of contracts, deeds, wills and trusts;
  • the rules of precedent;
  • interpretation of judgments, orders and practice directions; and
  • questions of interpretation raised by res judicata and issue estoppel.

    This material is also published as Title 25 “Interpretation” of The Laws of Australia legal encyclopaedia.
