Can the legislature effectively supersede judicial interpretations with which it disagrees?

Deborah Widiss
1.00PM to 2.00PM
  • Professor Deborah Widiss

Legislative supremacy depends on the assumption that if the legislative branch disagrees with a judicial interpretation of a law, it may “override” that interpretation by passing a new statute or amending an existing statute. This seminar will present my research looking at the efficacy of overrides in the United States, and it will explore possibilities for similar tensions to arise under the Australian system.
