Law Drafting

The Law Drafting group is led by the Deputy Chief Parliamentary Counsel (Drafting), Cassie Nicholson.

Drafting work is carried out by Parliamentary Counsel, all of whom are lawyers, grouped into four drafting teams. Their work is both challenging and specialised, and yet the issues they deal with range across a wide spectrum.

The group also provides secretarial and legal policy support to the Legislation Design and Advisory Committee (LDAC) and its subcommittees.

See Shape the future of New Zealand law for more about working as a drafter, including the qualities needed for the job and drafter profiles.
