Bahrain: CLDP Releases First Draft of Legislative Drafting Guide to Parliament

September 26, 2018 - September 27, 2018

On September 26, in Manama, CLDP met with the head legal advisors and legal researchers of the Bahrain Parliament to release a draft guide on commercial legislative research. The guide is intended to act as a resource tool for the legal advisors, researchers, and parliament training center staff to promote better institutional understanding and best practices on researching and writing legal memos for Bahrain’s parliament. For the past two years, CLDP has provided technical assistance to the Parliament of Bahrain on a variety of economic and trade-related topics. The guide represents a compilation of those topics, including how to study the economic impact of legislation, trade and value-add tax legislation, and best practices in drafting legislative memos.  The guide also serves as a resource tool and links users with online tools such as the model laws available from the World Trade Organization and UN Commission on International Trade Law. The Parliament of Bahrain greeted the release of the guide with enthusiastic support, with final publication anticipated by December 2018.
