Developments in statutory interpretation case law are often seen to be of greatest relevance to those whose job it is to advise on or argue about the operation of existing statutes. In my opinion, they are just as relevant for those who design statutes, as they need to ensure that government policy can be achieved when the law is interpreted and administered. This is not a terribly dramatic insight. After all, these jobs are bound together by a common theme – statutes and the words contained within them. With this in mind, there is plenty to take out of this episode of iNOW! – for law designers and interpreters alike!
