  • Enables practitioners to keep on the right side of difficult legislation, such as the Human Rights Act and EU law
  • Goes through a range of critical issues, such as the interpretation of words, what may and may not be implied if the meaning is unclear, what sources of information outside a statute may be used to throw light on its meaning, the effect of new legislation on existing law and the effect of an error in legislation
