Course Description

Legislation - LAW798
2 Credits

In this course, students evaluate practical and theoretical approaches to the interpretation of statutes, using legislative histories and “canons” of statutory interpretation. The course also examines the underlying process that produces ambiguity in statutes, as well as the delicate role the judiciary performs in trying to resolve the problems that result. (No prerequisite.)
