    Statutory Interpretation 101 (On-Demand CLE)

    There are many ways to approach the process of interpreting a statute. Textualism is an interpretative approach that relies heavily on the intrinsic sources to determine meaning. Intentionalism is an interpretative approach that relies heavily on extrinsic sources, particularly the legislative history, to discern the enacting legislature’s specific intent. Finally, purposivism is an interpretative approach that searches all of the sources to discern the enacting legislature’s general intent, or purpose.

    With so many different approaches, how does an attorney discern the meaning of language in a statute? This panel will explain the linear approach to interpretation. The linear approach is a step-by-step process that will appeal to textualist, intentionalist, and purposivist judges alike. Taught by the country’s leading expert on statutory interpretation, this panel will help you learn how to effectively argue about and explain a statute’s meaning to your client, opposing counsel, and, if necessary, a judge.

    This program was presented at the Section's 2018 Spring Conference.
