  • The Nature of Legislative Intentby Richard Ekins

    Oxford University Press 2012; US$ 69.99

    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. Many scholars argue that legislative intent is a fiction: the legislative... more...

    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.
