Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As with his book The Nature and Authority of Precedent, Duxbury sheds a new and penetrating light on areas which might be thought to be familiar. Not everyone will agree with his conclusions on topics such as judicial legislation, strong judicial review and legislative intent, but all will benefit from the care with which he examines the issues, his formidable knowledge of jurisprudential and other literature and the clarity of his analysis."
Sir Ross Cranston, Judge, High Court (England and Wales), Queen’s Bench Division

"Neil Duxbury’s Elements of Legislation is an insightful study of legislation … The strength of this work lies in the provision of an historical account, interwoven with philosophical arguments, to explain the role of legislation and its judicial interpretation and application within English law."
Catharine MacMillan, Public Law
