Abstract

eLearn: Statutory Interpretation – an Introduction is an online resource that provides students of law and related disciplines with an interactive way to know, understand and practise the fundamentals of interpretation.

This digital resource provides activities that create an engaging way to improve the skills and knowledge that students acquire in their seminars and tutorials. It is designed to align with a semester course where statutory interpretation may be either a unit of study or embedded in another legal subject. It highlights the modern approach to statutory interpretation.

The resource serves as a revision and support tool. Students can stop an activity, logoff and resume at the point they last reached. Completing the reading and activities will take students 5–7 hours, depending on their level of interest and interaction with extra content such as flowcharts; how-to videos and glossaries. It is a companion resource for all foundations of law textbooks and units in which statutory interpretation is taught.
