The Law Reform Commission (LRC) has awarded certificates to 36 persons who participated in a weeklong intensive training program in Legislative Drafting at the Capitol Building in Monrovia. LRC said the participants were drawn from various government ministries and agencies and were given theoretic and practical training in the course work.At the end of the training, LRC allowed the participants to benefit from a weeklong internship with the Legislature (Senate and House Legal and Drafting Offices), Governance Commission (GC) and LRC. Through the internship, The LRC exposed the participants to practical drafting using real documents. As a result of the training, one of the participants was awarded a contract at the Executive Mansion, and may be permanently assigned at the House when members of that body return from their agriculture break. In his keynote address, the Director-General of the Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA), Oblayon Nyemah, urged the participants to make use of the knowledge they have acquired.‘’This is the first time in the history of our country that such a course has been entirely organized and offered by Liberian lawyers and legislative professionals. Pass on what you have learned because ‘knowledge shared is also knowledge gained,” said Mr. Nyemah.Retired Justice of the Supreme Court of Liberia, Madam Gladys K. Johnson, who is now the Chairperson of the Independent National Commission on Human Rights, encouraged the participants to apply what they have learned in the performance of their jobs. Justice Johnson admonished the newly certified legal drafters to draft laws in a manner and form that will reflect professionalism, love for country and discipline as laws drafted by them will not only benefit them, but generations to come. “You do not put your feelings into laws you draft. The intent of the law comes from the proponents of that law. Your work is to ensure that the laws you draft are unambiguous and simple, so simple that violations of those laws cannot be blamed on its wordings and constructs,” said Justice Johnson.Attorney Nadia S. Kamara, who spoke on behalf of the participants, pleaded with her colleagues to stick together and forge a bond that will eventually mature into “an association of enlightened and credible legal and legislative drafters.” “What we have started here today is indeed the beginning from which greater things will come. Let us hold together and see how we turn out to be,” said Kamara.Attending the program were The Co-Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Worlea S. Dunah; Vice President for University of Liberia Relations, Norris Tweh; Chief Clerk of the House of Representatives, Mildred Sayon; Ambassador Charles Minor of the Board of Tax Appeals; Professor of Law and Dean of the Louis Arthur Grimes School of Law, Cllr. David A.B. Jallah, and Deputy Minister of Justice for Codification, Harriet Badio.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
