"That's why we have lawyers. They study a language for three years - and they learn it - and it's a language that if a normal person read it, they'd have a stroke." Lewis Black, Stark Raving Black (2009).


AND that is why there are LAW DICTIONARIES

:yes:

What do you know about the interpretations act HR?

My comprehension of it is that all acts must be interpreted in plain english as in the oxford english unless otherwise stated.
"A ruler who violates the law is illegitimate. He has no right to be obeyed. His commands are mere force and coercion. Rulers who act lawlessly, whose laws are unlawful, are mere criminals".

I know that no road lies on a horizontal plane and no roadside camera can measure a passing car in a straight line. So no Act can make a camera enforceable against an alleged speeding offence. Section 8.

Other than that and from my personal experience in Court, no Acts are given their plain english meaning.
