EUPOL COPPS Mission concludes series of sessions on legislative drafting

EUPOL COPPS sponsored six sessions of a specialized training on legislative drafting for 11 legal staff members of the Ministry of Justice.

The aim of the training, which started in February 2021 and was delivered by a prominent Palestinian legal expert, was to develop the capacities of the legal staff at the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) in legislative drafting, to have a better understanding of the legislative process, the methodology of developing policies, legislative drafting techniques, and developing the skills in reviewing legal texts to ensure its compatibility with the internal legislative system and international obligations.

On Wednesday 9 June, 2021, Head of EUPOL COPPS Nataliya Apostolova and Minister of Justice Mohammad Shalaldeh handed the certificates to the 11 MoJ participants.

“Legislative drafters play a crucial rule in developing legislation which promotes democratic governance and gives effect to the rule of law especially when the parliament is not functioning,” said Apostolova.
