Professional Legislative Drafters – New Ideas for Switzerland?

Joint Conference of SSL and CfL


Description     Several countries and legal systems have comprehensive educational programmes for professional legislative drafters. The joint conference of the Swiss Society for Legislation (SSL) and the Centre for Legislative Studies (CfL) compared the Swiss system, which does not know professional legislative drafters, with the systems implemented in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Poland, the United States, Canada and Australia, where such a profession, in one form or another, exists. It aimed to encourage the debate on the potential need for professional legislative drafters in Switzerland and the benefits such a change of system might bring.
