The University of Western Australia’s Faculty of Law will host the webinar “The meaning of meanings: use of defined terms in statutory interpretation” on 16 February 2022 at 1pm AWST (Australian Western Standard Time, or UTC+8), with the presentation of Jacinta Dharmananda (Senior Lecturer, UWA Law School).

This seminar explores the ways that differently drafted definitions can influence statutory interpretation. Particular attention will be paid to the uncertain issue of whether the words of a definition can be construed by reference to the term defined, and the avoidance of techniques that may be problematic.
