The Drafting Legislation, Regulation, and Policy programme from University of London aims to promote an understanding of the principles of legislative studies and an in-depth awareness of what constitutes legislative quality and how this can be achieved.
Legislative drafting is often perceived as a technical skill that one learns on the job. The view of the Institute’s Sir William Dale Centre for Legislative Studies is that legislative drafting is a practical discipline requiring awareness of the theoretical principles of drafting along with experience on the job. Legislative drafting has evolved to become the bedrock of political, economic and social transformation. It is still, however, relatively unexplored as an academic discipline. The LLM examines issues related to the policy process, the legislative process and the drafting process.
The LLM is aimed at those seeking a career in legislative drafting, those already working as legislative drafters or those who want a career in, or are already working for, organizations that produce different types of draft normative acts. Many of our students are mid-career drafters employed by government (for example, by AG Chambers, the Ministry of Justice or other ministries).
