Event Details

An interactive session to learn about the good law approach and discover how policy ideas are turned into legislation.

 

 

An workshop run by the Houses of Parliament Outreach Service and the Office of the Parliamentary Counsel to illustrate how our laws are made, what good law is (www.gov.uk/good-law) and why we should all care about legislation. By the end of this session, participants will have a clearer understanding of how laws that affect all of us are made.

 

The Office of the Parliamentary Counsel is a group of government lawyers who specialise in drafting legislation. They translate policy into laws.

 

The audience will learn about the legislative process looking at different sources of legislation and the various stages that each bill must pass through in order to become law.

 

OPC drafters and the public will also play “Legislate?!” a board game designed by OPC to illustrate the lifecycle of legislation from policy ideas to implementation.
