About the event

This seminar is also available as a webinar. 

Join the Australian First Parliamentary Counsel Peter Quiggin PSM as he discusses recent developments in legislative drafting at the Commonwealth level.  Also hear from Parliamentary Counsel of Western Australia Mr Geoff Lawn as he provides his update on drafting and access to legislation matters in the state of Western Australia.

I’m the Parliamentary Draftsman,
And they tell me it’s a fact
That I often make a muddle
Of a simple little Act.
I’m a target for the critics,
And they take me in their stride –
Oh, how nice to be a critic
Of a job you’ve never tried!

Excerpted from “The Parliamentary Draftsman” which appeared in “Poetic Justice,” by J.P.C. (James Comyn) | London: Stevens & Sons Ltd., 1947 | Pages 31-32.
