LEGISLATIVE DRAFTING CHALLENGE
It is with great pleasure that we announce the Second Legislation Drafting Competition, 2014.

This year, we are introducing a second round to the Competition. The top 5 (five) teams, based on scores,shall each appear before a panel consisting of judges and the remaining 4 (four) teams, in a Parliamentary set-up to defend their draft Bill and submit to questions.
