The value of precedents is that they are the product of experience. That experience is based upon established principles which have stood the test of time. This book examines the principles of legislative drafting and sets out established precedents for the legislative drafter. All those who read these precedents should bear in mind that counsels responsibility is to translate a policy idea into a series of legislative sentences. The task, by its very nature, demands skills of the highest order in the practice of the law.

The book could be of assistance to those engaged in distance learning, who may want to see a finished product for purposes of comparison. It can also be used as a companion volume to Legislative Drafting, published by Cavendish Publishing. As such, no attempts have been made to deal with the rules of legislative drafting except in a few cases where it will be of assistance without recourse to the earlier work.

The formalities; subsidiary legislation; statutory corporations; offences and penalties; financial provisions; miscellaneous provisions.
