The rules of statutory interpretation

The rules of statutory interpretation

The presentation is an overview of the three rules and one approach to statutory interpretation. This includes a definition of the rule, relevant case examples and the advantages and disadvantages of each. It may be useful for the students to research the cases independently and attempt to apply the various rules in order to understand how application of the rules can provide either just results or absurd results.
