Implementation Provisions and Drafting Processes
'There ought to be a law!'
This is the open access version of Legal Studies 557: Implementation Provisions and Drafting Processes which is the fourth of five courses in a program of study leading to the Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Legislative Drafting offered by Athabasca University. (The fifth course, LGST 559, consists of one major drafting project and is not available through open access.) This version of LGST 557 contains all the materials in the course except the drafting project assignments which are assessed and are only available to students who enroll for credit.
There is a Detailed Hyperlinked Table of Contents for all four of these open access courses.
It is recommended that these four courses (LGST 551, 553, 555, and 557) be studied in that order. Based on that assumption, in this course students will apply their drafting skills developed in previous courses in more complex tasks. This course will focus on the drafting of compliance and other implementation provisions; delegating powers; and subsidiary legislation. It also considers how the drafter works with clients in the legislative process.
