Pepper V. Hart [1993] - statutory interpretation

AdvantagesTrue interpretation of the law

DisadvantagesMakes the law complex

"Pepper V. Hart [1993] has revolutionised the process of statutory interpretation in the UK. Pepper v. Hart [1993] (Pepper) has extended and developed the purposive rule of statutory interpretation beyond that which was previously available to the courts. The case is a landmark, heralded as both wrong and a mistake, and positively as a method of examining the true "mischief" to be remedied by legislators. The case has certainly generated considerable ..." Read review

British Law Completely Out of Control

Advantagesnone to us

Disadvantagesall to us

"The British Law is completely out of control! Personally, I think there are too many people in this country to legally control. I feel they take the easy route e.g. capture people who clearly are breaking the law, like fighting outside nightclubs, and people with a tail light broken on a car. When it comes to a situation such as yours it is just too much for them to do alongside policing other situations. Perhaps we have become a lazy country maybe. ..." Read review
