Burrows and Carter Statute Law in New Zealand, 6th edition, is a clear and comprehensive guide to statutory interpretation, preparation and drafting in New Zealand. It includes discussion of the Treaty of Waitangi, the procedures for enactment of legislation in our modern MMP Parliament and the progress of new styles of drafting, and analyses recent case law, with a focus on issues of interpretation.
Key developments since the last edition was published include case law changes, the Legislation Act 2019 (Part 2 of which re-enacts, with updating and reforms, the Interpretation Act 1999), changes to the law on secondary legislation and to parliamentary procedure, dual-language Acts in English and te reo Maori, greater recognition in law of tikanga Maori, and proposed amendments to the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990 (for example, amendments related to declarations of inconsistency).

Previously a legal researcher at the NZ Law Commission, he has also been an adjunct lecturer in Legislation at Victoria University and Private Secretary (Attorney-General).
