About NLIU-VIDHI Online Certificate Course on Legislative Drafting

The Certificate Course on Legislative Drafting is being offered by the National Law Institute University (NLIU), Bhopal in collaboration with the Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy. This online certificate course on Legislative Drafting, in the context of India’s law, policy and unique experiences, aims to introduce students to legislative drafting by exposing them to various ideas and the opportunity to discuss them from the learned resource persons.

Legislative Drafting has unfortunately not received the required attention in Indian law schools, and we believe that the certificate course will be a step in covering this gap. The Certificate Course is to be held from 17th to 19th April 2024, on an online platform to be informed later. The course will focus on various aspects of legislative drafting. It will offer an introduction to the traditional principles of legislative drafting, such as legislative style and the components of a Bill.

Modern techniques of legislative drafting, including the usage of plain language will also be discussed along with the Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy’s initiative to draft Simple, Accessible, Rational and Actionable Laws (SARAL). Ultimately, the course will acquaint students with the process of turning a policy idea into a piece of legislation that is clear, concise, and legally effective. By attending, participants will benefit from extensive and cutting-edge insights on these subjects from academic experts and practitioners, providing an opportunity to challenge their prior knowledge and preparing them for forthcoming challenges of the field of legislative drafting.
