    Legislation (21227). 3 units. This course will examine issues relating to the enactment, application, and interpretation of legislation, primarily at the federal level. The course will introduce students to the basic contours of congressional lawmaking practice, theoretical models of the legislative process, the application and interpretation of statutes by the executive branch, and numerous aspects of judicial statutory interpretation. Students will explore and critique the different methods and canons that courts apply in construing statutes and consider such issues as the appropriate degree of deference to administrative interpretations, judicial use of legislative history in construction, and interaction between the courts and Congress. Self-scheduled examination. L.M. Solan.
