This chapter reflects on Alan Rodger's interest and expertise in statute law. It presents examples that illustrate the range of his interest in statute law, from the purest scholarship to a lively appreciation, derived from his experience as a Scottish Law Officer, of the art of the possible. They also give a hint of the quality of his prose style, and the breadth of his reading and knowledge of both high and popular culture. Some of his important judgments on statutes are reviewed.

Keywords:   Scottish Law Officer, Alan Rodger, statute law, judgments
