This paper presents a set of argumentation schemes that can be used to identify, analyze and evaluate types of arguments characteristically used in cases of contested statutory interpretation in law. These schemes represent forms of argument already identified in the literature as leading forms of argument used in cases of statutory interpretation where legal disputes about how to interpret a statute have generally arisen.
