Legislative DraftingThis course teaches basic techniques of statutory and regulatory drafting. Students engage in a series of redrafting and editing exercises and then undertake the original drafting of a series of increasingly complex statutes. Through related readings, the class also explores how the legislative process and principles of statutory interpretation (including the canons of statutory construction and the use of legislative history) affect the drafting process.
