The Law Drafting group is led by Acting Deputy Chief Parliamentary Counsel Fiona Leonard.
Drafting work is carried out by Parliamentary Counsel and Associate Parliamentary Counsel, all of whom are lawyers, grouped into four drafting teams. Their work is both challenging and specialised, and yet the issues they deal with range across a wide spectrum.
See Shape the future of New Zealand law for more about working as a drafter, including the qualities needed for the job and drafter profiles.
Editorial Services proofread and provide quality assurance for legislation during the drafting and publishing processes.
