  • Legislation and Statutory Interpretation

    LAWS 44201 - 01 (3) e, x
    Much of lawyers' work today involves the close reading and interpretation of statutes or like texts. The focus of this class is the study of current interpretive theories and their application. The class also encompasses political theory and public choice approaches to the legislative process as they relate to legal interpretation. The class has the aim of bolstering students' capacity to work with statutes in law school and beyond. At the end of the class, students will have a thorough grasp of the process through which statutes are produced by the legislative branch and their interpretation by the courts. The student's grade is based on class participation and a final examination. Please note that the last day of this course will be held on Tuesday, May 5th. Makeup sessions are currently scheduled on Wednesdays, April 1st, 8th and 15th from 7-8:40pm. Before enrolling, please check your schedule accordingly.
