The aim of this book is to prove Sir William Dale's doctrine that the rules for drafting good quality legislation are the same in common and civil systems of law. Legislative solutions can therefore serve the drafter, the judge and the practitioner of any jurisdiction.
The book discusses the general issue of quality in legislation from the legislative process to the actual drafting interpretation and enforcement. It also analyses topics related to quality in legislation such as clarity, precision and unambiguity, plain language and gender-neutral language and assesses whether Sir William's view of universality in the definition and elements of quality in legislation is right or not.
