Interesting and useful

by Neil S on Nov 22, 2012

This is an interesting book that is useful for some things and not for others. It provides a good introduction to the definitions of words and concepts that are part of legal interpretation. It is also a very good introduction to the legal practices and beliefs of very conservative judges such as Justice Scalia. However, as an introduction to the full scope of judicial (especially constitutional) practice, it is very narrow and does not provide much insight into the way in which most judges interpret and have interpreted law for the past 50 years. If there was a rating category "halfway between yes and no above, that is what I woujld select.
