Statutory Interpretations in Australia

Statutory Interpretation in Australia

Author(s): Dennis Pearce, Robert Stanley Geddes

Forty years since the first edition was published and eight editions later, Statutory Interpretation in Australia remains the pre-eminent text on the subject. Statutory Interpretation in Australia, 8th Edition concentrates on: statements of the courts and tribunals – describing approaches, assumptions and techniques of interpretation, as well as the application of these in one’s work; and the Interpretation Acts of each of the Australian jurisdictions - understanding the content of which is essential to determining the meaning of legislation. Extensive case references to the relevant principles for each jurisdiction have been included, allowing readers to identify the authorities that best suit their particular purposes.
