Building upon the successful administration of the Wroxton Workshop of Parliamentary Scholars and Parliamentarians, Amanda Riley and a team of Barristers in partnership with Lord Norton under a new company ARLS, will now provide bespoke certificated training courses with regard to Legislative Drafting.

Our courses which will be delivered around the world to various Parliaments and Government Institutions, have been built around guidelines laid out by the UK Office of the Parliamentary Counsel (OPC).






ARLS will prepare and deliver individual and bespoke legislative drafting training programmes around the world, with all courses built and designed specifically for the needs of the client


The importance of good legislative drafting cannot be underestimated, and time spent thinking and planning before anything is drafted is very seldom wasted. Generally, in most countries, Parliamentary time available for legislation is extremely limited, and any delays due to badly drafted legislation needs to be avoided.

Our comprehensive training courses have been prepared by experts in the field of legislative drafting, and each course we prepare will not only emphasis the essential components of good drafting, but also deliver drafting techniques that are necessary, clear, coherent, effective, and accessible
