The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the legislative process and statutory interpretation by courts and agencies. We will examine the ways Congress enacts statutes, the ways that courts and agencies interpret and apply statutes, and the way that legislators draft statutes. The course will cover theories and tools of statutory interpretation, canons of construction, and deference doctrine.
