Section 7 Preview

Drafting Schedules

In this Section, we focus particularly on the drafting of Schedules to contain legislative material that can usefully be separated from the main part of an instrument.

Section Objectives

The objective of this Section is to enable you to decide when to use Schedules and how to draft them.

Essential Questions

The following questions are considered:

  • What are schedules to legislative texts?
  • When should schedules be used?
  • How should schedules be drafted?

Studying this Section

This Section is quite straight-forward and should be quickly completed. No exercises are set. Your aim is to make yourself familiar, by working the activities, with the way in which schedules are dealt with in your legislation, and to develop an approach that enables you to decide when a schedule should be used and how it should best be drafted.
