Although the term 'interpretation' appears to be commonly used when attempting to discern the true significance of any subject, it will be a disregard to not credit interpretation as a concept. The author attempts to evaluate the concept of interpretation from a jurisprudential perspective. What should constitute law seems to be at the center of jurisprudence. Distinguishing the understanding of the same is made possible by the art of interpretation. In line with the development of several schools of jurisprudence, the idea of interpretation has also changed considerably. This paper is an attempt to have a comprehended view of various approaches to interpretation through a jurisprudential standpoint.
