Exploring the Law takes a unique approach to precedent and statutory interpretation which are considered in the context of self-contained case studies on selected topics of substantive law commonly taught in first year undergraduate programmes.
- Provides an initial overview of the principles of statutory interpretation and precedent, with extensive cross-referencing to their detailed consideration in case studies
- Uses case studies throughout to extract the principles of statutory interpretation and precedent from substantive law
- Examines the influence of the EU and the Human Rights Act 1998 on principles of statutory interpretation
- Provides students with guidance on further reading at the end of case study chapters
