Bennion on Statutory Interpretation is the leading work on the interpretation of legislation and essential reading for all those who practise law, whether drafting legislation, administering it, advising on it or arguing it in court.

First published in 1984, the Fifth Edition has been extensively revised and updated to ensure that it remains the seminal work on statutory interpretation for the modern-day practitioner.

The work explains clearly and concisely how to extract the relevant interpretative factors in deciding the legal meaning and effect of all types of legislation. The provision of checklists helps to ensure that no argument is overlooked. Critical issues such as how to assess legislative intent are examined. A framework is provided which enables the reader to interpret legislation accurately and confidently.
