The Workshop helped to build the technical capacity of legal advisors and legal drafters of the Bureau for Legislation and Opinion in Jordan on Drafting Legislative Amendments to enhance Legal Certainty.
On 29-30 November 2021, research fellows from the Max Planck Foundation delivered a technical workshop to build the capacity of around forty legal drafters, legal advisors and researchers of the Bureau for Legislation and Opinion in Jordan. The technical content of the workshop covered methods to ensure that legislative amendments are drafted in a way that enhance legal certainty and that they comply with the rule of law.
The workshop was formally inaugurated by the President of the Bureau for Legislation and Opinion, Dr. Fedaa al-Hmoud.
Max Planck Foundation research fellows presented on specific topics related to the state of the art in drafting legislative amendments, including examples from best comparative practices, technical formatting and drafting options for amending laws and technical options for drafting final and transitional provisions.
The workshop forms part of the project component aimed at building the capacity of legal drafters and legal advisors of the Bureau for Legislation and Opinion (Diwan al-Tashri’ wa’l-Ra’i), aimed at enhancing the compliance of laws with the Constitution and with Jordan’s international legal obligations, under the Max Planck Foundation project, “Strengthening Legislative Compliance and Constitutional Interpretation in Jordan”, generously supported by the German Federal Foreign Office.
