Recognized as a core text on statutory construction by the American Bar Association and others, Sutherland Statutes and Statutory Construction lays out the principles of statutory interpretation and helps you develop your own theories and positions supported by these principles, and by analysis of the legislative process itself. Topics include legislative power, legislative organization and procedure, legislative form, legislative applicability, statutory interpretation, and application of the principles of statutory construction in selected areas of substantive law.
With the August 2018 update, author Shambie Singer is introducing the first three volumes of the Eighth Edition. Volumes 3A-3C cover the application of the rules of statutory interpretation in selected areas of substantive law. Completely rewritten the Eighth Edition represent over a decade of sustained research and analysis. These new volumes build substantially on Sutherland's venerable, nearly 130-year, foundation and framework to reflect the most current doctrinal trends and results.
