Legislative Drafting And Statutory Interpretation: Comparative Perspectives From Malta, Canada And Nigeria

This book consists in a collection of three chapters all discussing one theme: legislative drafting and statutory interpretation. This discussion comprises three jurisdictions: Malta, Canada and Nigeria. Its necessity came about because the Faculty of Laws of the University of Malta has begun to teach a component in the Professional Practice study-unit LAW 5012 in the Master of Advocacy degree course on the very same topic of this book: legislative drafting and statutory interpretation. In order to develop the learning aids for this study-unit, it was thought best to publish a book on the subject which does not only discuss the Maltese legal system but which also absorbs pertinent knowledge from the rich experience of two other jurisdictions: Canada, and Nigeria. For this purpose leading experts in the subject have contributed a chapter in this book shedding light on their respective jurisdiction of competence they have thought best suitable to explain to the law student at the Faculty of Laws the main topical issues surrounding legislative drafting and statutory interpretation.
