1st international meeting – Rules for legal drafting in Portuguese-speaking countries/regions research project


The research project Rules for legislation drafting in Portuguese-speaking countries/regions aims to promote the definition of common rules and standards on  legislative drafting within the legal systems of Portuguese-speaking countries and regions: Portugal, Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Macao Special Administrative Region, Mozambique, São Tomé and Príncipe and East Timor.

The research project has been developed by the  Research Centre for Public Law since 2016 and the investigation team is currently composed of investigators not from only from this Research Centre but also from NOVA Law School, legal experts and investigators from Portuguese-speaking countries and regions and legislative drafting consultants from European universities.

The aim of the project is not to standardize laws withi the Portuguese-speaking countries and regions yet to find common rules on legal drafting in those countries and regions.

This week, on the 13th and 14th of October will take place at Lisbon Law School the first plenary and international meeting of this research project. On the 13th October, the Portuguese investigators and consultants from all the Portuguese-speaking countries will be discussing a first draft of one out of three main blocks of legal drafting rules previously identified within the project.

The research project team is organizing a workshop on legal drafting rules in each Portuguese-speaking countries/regions that will take place on the 14th of October also at Lisbon Law School. Specialists and professionals in legal drafting will attend this workshop and the research team is expecting a fruitful debate about the legal drafting rules in each Portuguese speaking country.
