About the Authors
  • In Elements of Legislation, Neil Duxbury examines the history of English law through the lens of legal philosophy in an effort to draw out the differences between judge-made and enacted law and to explain what courts do with the laws that legislatures enact. He presents a series of rigorously researched and carefully rehearsed arguments concerning the law-making functions of legislatures and courts, the concepts of legislative supremacy and judicial review, the nature of legislative intent and the core principles of statutory interpretation.

    • Original perspective on the differences between judge-made and enacted law will appeal to practically-minded legal philosophers
    • Sets out a clear and robust defence of the concept of legislative intent and traces the development of the main principles of statutory interpretation from the Middle Ages to the present
    • Sets out arguments which will resonate with readers throughout all common law jurisdictions
