Should Statutory Interpretation be Taught in the First Year?

There's an article analyzing the issue, Ethan J. Leib, ADDING LEGISLATION COURSES TO THE FIRST-YEAR CURRICULUM, 58 JLEGED 166 (June, 2008). At Mercer, we've had it as a required first year course, and now it's a required third semester course, and we're looking at moving it back to the first semester. We've had it for a decade.... Unfortunately, it's not (yet) on ssrn, but several of his other pieces are, a few of which relate to statutes.

Posts will obviously be lighter over the break...

I thought that's what criminal law was for.

Haha. I like how he says professors would prefer to get chili peppers rather than teach a useful course! Looks like Professor Sammons is the only chili pepper at Mercer Law: http://www.ratemyprofessors.com/SelectTeacher.jsp?the_dept=Law&orderby=TLName&letter=A&sid=591

Hmm... Maybe I need to switch my evidence section...
