Re-Interpretation of Statutes
Author(s): Professor Lourens Marthinus Du Plessis
Re-Interpretation of Statutes is a re-conceptualisation (and, therefore, not a second edition) of the author’s The Interpretation of Statutes (published in 1986). It deals with a conventional legal discipline (interpretation of statutes) in an unconventional manner. This has become necessary due to drastic shifts and changes in the area of statutory and constitutional interpretation over the last decade.
Precise and complete references to authority. Thoroughly and carefully researched. Source of basic and advanced knowledge in the field. Contains comprehensive tables of statutes and cases, as well as a subject index.
In dealing with the ‘shifting’ discipline of interpretation, the book raises issues of constitutional and administrative law. The work enhances an understanding of topical judgments on constitutional and related issues. It incorporates developments in the field of statutory interpretation up to the end of 2001.
