This coursebook emphasizes a particular perspective on statutory interpretation—pragmatic judging, which means that the judge is influenced by substantive background considerations. This perspective is also sensitive to the historical framework that shapes modern statutory interpretation, to the institutional setting in which interpretation occurs, and to the reality that statutes can be a source of law (even when there is no common law power). The book concludes with an exploration of the rules governing the lawmaking process, especially those found in state constitutions.
