    • Abraham Marial Awet South Sudan The interpretation of legislation by courts gives 'life' to the statutes passed by parliament. The effect of interpretation is to make the law 'real' by giving definition and meaning to statutes. This function of the courts is a by-product of the dispute-resolution role performed by courts. Courts, therefore, make law by declaring what the law is, as contained in (mostly) legislation and delegated legislation. However, the interpretation of legislation only 'makes' law until either: a superior court overrules a decision of a lower court, or parliament changes or alters a court's decision with another act of parliament As such, law made by judges when interpreting legislation is not established forever as 'the' law but subject to later change or development. In order to truly know what the law on a particular subject matter is then, judges and legal practitioners must look at both: the statute dealing with a particular area of the law, and case law arising from that statute and read them together, as if the decisions of judges had been written into the statute itself.
