Description

Nelson’s Statutory Interpretation aspires both to train students in the techniques of statutory interpretation and to help students think systematically about those techniques. It presents lightly edited judicial opinions in leading cases, followed by extensive notes and questions that encourage careful analysis of difficult concepts. It takes seriously both “textualist” and “intentionalist” (or “purposivist”) modes of statutory interpretation ; approaches that are common at all levels of the judiciary.
