Justice and the Ethics of Legal Interpretation addresses how it is that legal texts -laws, statutes and regulations ? can, and do have meaning.

Are legislatures able to form and act on intentions? The question matters because the interpretation of statutes is often thought to centre on the intention of the legislature and because the way in which the legislature acts is relevant to the authority it does or should enjoy.

Conundrums, puzzles, and perversities: these are Leo Katz’s stock-in-trade, and in Why the Law Is So Perverse , he focuses on four fundamental features of our legal system, all of which seem to not make sense on some level and to demand explanation.

Pulling the rug out from debates about interpretation, The Language of Statutes joins together learning from law, linguistics, and cognitive science to illuminate the fundamental issues and problems in this highly contested area.

This collection of Mootz's classic essays argues that legal practice is a hermeneutical and rhetorical event that can best be understood and theorized in those terms.
