In Elements of Legislation, Neil Duxbury examines the history of English law through the lens of legal philosophy in an effort to draw out the differences between judge-made and enacted law and to explain what courts do with the laws that legislatures enact.

He presents a series of rigorously researched and carefully rehearsed arguments concerning the law-making functions of legislatures and courts, the concepts of legislative supremacy and judicial review, the nature of legislative intent and the core principles of statutory interpretation.

Subjects:
Jurisprudence, Statutory Interpretation and Legislative Drafting
Contents:
1. Introduction
2. The supremacy problem
3. The quest to intellectualize statute law
4. Legislatures and intentions
5. Fidelity to text
6. Purposivism, past and present.
