Definition of Legislative Drafting and Drafter/Draftsperson

"Legislative Drafting is the skill of a Legislative Drafter who is a lawyer trained in the discipline of mastering the use of words and knowledge to effectively communicate policies and intentions into simple, clear and intelligible laws, and analysing the future to produce workable and realistic solutions which will develop society". 

"Legislative drafters are responsible for producing legislation which promotes democratic governance and gives effect to the rule of law."

Legislative Drafting quotes from Articles by
Jamela A Ali, Attorney at Law LLB(Hons)(UWI), LEC, LLM(Legislative Drafting), MCIArb.

"It is poor drafting and absence of clarity which encourages those who wish to undermine the rule of law."

"To draft cut and paste style is to go to sea without a compass, but to draft without civil litigation experience is not to go to sea at all."

"Draftspersons are not legal mechanics and it is their function to advise when recommendations are inappropriate for a Constitution. Erudition as opposed to compliance separates the proper draftspersons from the legal mechanics."

"In drafting legislation Parliamentary Counsel must always take account of the Constitution, the principles of good administration and modern legislative drafting ... and relevant case law with a view towards improving the quality of legislation."
