Statute Law in New Zealand provides a clear and comprehensive guide to statutory interpretation, preparation and drafting. It includes discussion of the Treaty of Waitangi and the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990.

For 16 years this work has been a leading authority used by students, practitioners and the courts. In this fourth edition Professor Burrows is joined by Ross Carter of the Parliamentary Counsel Office in updating the developments in New Zealand statute law over the last six years. There is discussion of the procedures for the enactment of legislation in our modern MMP Parliament, and the progress of new styles of drafting. Attention is given to the facilitation of public access to legislation, in particular via the New Zealand Legislation Website. There is also analysis of recent case law, with a focus on issues of interpretation, including the purposive approach of its limitations, the limits of "error correction" by the courts, the use of extrinsic materials in interpretation, and the increasing importance of human rights and fundamental legal values.
