This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

Statutory interpretation has a specific focus on locating and using legislation, aids to interpretation, and deployment of interpretative techniques. The course prepares students for determining whether the exercise of a statutory power is invalid if a condition or procedure regulating its exercise, is breached; determining whether a law has a retrospective operation; determining whether a statutory offence contains a mental ingredient to be proved by the prosecution (mens rea), and if so, what that ingredient is; determining the scope of a statutory power to make deleganted legislation in the light of delegated legislation, which has purportedly been made under a power; and the application of a rule in any applicable charter of human rights. A law graduate should be able to give a reasoned opinion as to the appropriate meaning of a legialative provision which takes adequate account of the law of statutory interpretation.
