iNOW! has business line input these days, which is already making the product better – thanks everyone.  As new High Court judge Michelle Gordon and ex-High Court judge Ken Hayne put it, ‘the proper construction and application of statutes always has been, but now more than ever is, an essential legal skill’ – we agree.  The theme we want to leave you with this month comes from a famous American jurist – ‘Literalness may strangle meaning’1.  Please enjoy!
