Statutory Drafting 

The documents which are required to be composed with reference

 to the principles of 

legal composition may be generally described as - 

“All writings expressly intended to be, 

or which frequently become, the 

subject of legal interpretation”. 

Statutory drafting would cover: 

a. Statutes and Enactments – i.e. the legal composition and statutory 

drafting of laws, 

enactments or statutes of the legislative body or Parliament.


b. Quasi-Legislative Documents – the term quasi-judicial implies ‘having a partly 

legislative character by possession of the right to make rules and regulations having the 

force of law’. Therefore quasi judicial documents would mean documents like - the 

Memorandum or Articles of Association of a Company, By-Laws of a Society, etc.
