Our 2-day Legislative Drafting Workshop consists of two separate 1-day courses. The first day is an introduction
to and overview of drafting legislation, and the second day gives a limited number of attendees
from the first day the opportunity to draft legislation and get feedback from an experienced drafter.

All of our courses and workshops include extensive interaction with our faculty, making our courses and workshops both educational and mini-consulting sessions with substantive experts.
