what is Statutory Drafting drafting pleading cs professional notes
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.
