An Evaluation of the Rules of Statutory Interpretation, 3 University of Kansas Law Review 1 (1954)
The rules of statutory interpretation are under attack as being worthless and even harmful. The purpose of this article is to consider the value of these rules and possible changes in them and in their use. The importance of the subject is considerable because the primary function of modern appellate courts is the interpretation of statutes, and it is conventional for courts to make use of the rules in the course of interpretation.
