Principles of Legislative and Regulatory Drafting provides a succinct guide to an area of law and practice which has previously been very poorly served by English textbooks. It explains how drafters can convert legislative and regulatory policy into a form which has the desired effect in the most direct and accessible way. The principles and skills of drafting are very largely common to both the legislative and regulatory fields, but the book draws attention to areas in which significant differences arise.

Extracts from the Interpretation Act 1978 and the European Convention on Human Rights are included as Appendices.

The book provides an invaluable introduction for those engaged in legislative and regulatory drafting, while also being useful to anyone who is interested in the creation and interpretation of legislative and regulatory texts.
