Key aspects of our approach and strategy are:
- To make clear to you or the authority sponsoring the Bill, the kind of drafting instructions, that is most helpful to us.
- To consult with your office at an early stage after receipt of the preliminary drafting instructions. This is with a view to making a precise outline of the objectives and principles to be contained in the legislation as well as a statement of the principal means of attaining the objectives and principles.
- To carefully analyse the legislative proposal in relation to existing law, potential danger areas and practicability. In doing this, we will look at existing laws to see what the structure is within the given jurisdiction.
- To design and plan the composition of the draft instrument so as to shape the broad content of the intended enactment. In so doing, we will design the structure of the draft statute, like the substantive provisions and the administrative provisions of the Bill.
- To scrutinize the draft bill or subsidiary legislation, by checking and re-checking for any errors or omissions, especially of substance and against the general intendments of the statute.
- To establish clear and simple communication procedures, in order to expedite the decision making process, commensurate with appropriate reporting lines.
