"[This book] will be of great value to practitioners, students, academics and judges - whatever their level of experience. […] The trouble for many legal practitioners, and indeed for many legal book writers, can be a failure to see the wood for the trees, and that is a particular risk when it comes to a subject as fissiparous as statutory interpretation. David Lowe and Charlie Potter are to be congratulated for having avoided that risk: they have written a crisp and engaging book, which covers this important topic in an informative and accessible way…" From the foreword by David Neuberger

Understanding Legislation provides a practical, accessible guide to interpreting both English and European legislation of all kinds. This book can be used as a first port of call for practitioners and students on all matters of statutory construction. It is designed to serve as a succinct and authoritative point of reference for questions concerning sources of legislation, the anatomy and structure of differing instruments and matters of interpretation. As well as considering how to read statutory language, and the key principles and presumptions that the courts will apply, the book addresses how other legislation and materials can influence the interpretive exercise and in what way. To this end, it discusses the interpretive significance of the different components of legislation, the various external aids to construction that may exist, and the role of international law, the European Convention on Human Rights (through the Human Rights Act 1998) and EU law in interpreting domestic law. While the primary focus is on English law, the treatment of EU and international law will also serve as concise freestanding guidance as to the sources of EU law, the construction of EU legislation and the construction of treaties.


[W]ell written ... well organised and accessible. A must-have for law undergraduates and postgraduates and for practitioners. -- Simon Parsons * New Law Journal * [A] commendably concise, well-organised and clearly structured book that will operate as an invaluable introduction to all of the core issues of statutory interpretation. The book can, and indeed should, genuinely be read cover to cover to provide an overview of the core ideas and the trends of the case law, without losing one's way in a morass of historical and unhelpful detail... as an unparalleled practical introduction to one of the truly essential subjects, every public lawyer should own Understanding Legislation. -- C J S Knight, 11KBW * Public Law *
