Description
The subject of 'Interpretation of Statutes' has been introduced as a separate and independent subject for LL.B. (B.L.) students of Indian Universities. To say the fact, it deals with most important part of legal practice and useful for both Bench and Bar. However, it seems a dry and boring subject to learners. To make it interesting, the author tried to present it in a systematic step by step process and explained the concepts with case laws. The subject has been presented in Five Units. Unit I deals with 'Understanding Statutes and Interpretation'. Unit II deals with 'Basic Rules of Interpretation'. Unit III deals with 'Construction of Different Statutes'. Unit IV deals with 'External and Internal Aids and Presumptions of Interpretation' and Unit V deals with 'Effects of Changes in Statutes'.
