Post-legislative scrutiny clinic: writing a committee’s PLS report and advancing its recommendations

Post-legislative scrutiny (PLS) is the practice of monitoring the implementation and evaluating the impact of laws. The aim is to ensure that laws benefit citizens in the way originally intended by lawmakers. 

The third clinic of the post-legislative scrutiny (PLS) Community of Practice will focus on drafting a committee’s report on the impact and implementation of legislation, considering different structures and formats of reports, reviewing data and opinions to guide findings about how the law works, enhancing understandability and readability of the PLS report, drafting recommendations which are SMART, and advancing the report’s recommendations at administrative and at political level.
