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...
