CLDP trains Afghan Taqneen and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Lawyers in Legislative Drafting

December 1, 2014 - December 12, 2014

CLDP conducted two Legislative Drafting Training Workshops on December 1-5 and December 8-12, 2014 in Paris, France for 45 participants from Afghanistan and GCC countries. Afghan program participants included 40 officials from the Legislative Drafting Department (Taqnin) of the Afghanistan Ministry of Justice. GCC program participants included lawyers from Bahrain and the Dubai Economic Council. The 45 participants received training from the Conseil D’Etat and Ecole Nationale d’Administration in legislative drafting. The participants were also trained in certain specialized subject matters such as intellectual property, insolvency, and company law. The program included meetings and consultations with the French Ministry of Justice and the Prime Minister’s office in order to acquire a broader perspective of the French legislative process. Following the training workshop, participants will receive a series of follow-up training programs over a period of two years on topics such as drafting and analyzing legislation; organization, publication, and recording of laws; and legal research. The objectives of this program were to bolster the capacity of the Afghan Taqnin and GCC lawyers in legislative drafting with attention given to relevant areas of commercial law, and establishing a better understanding of legislative drafting from the perspective of the French legal system.
