An Insider’s View of the Legislative Process: The Role of Legislation Counsel
Cristrup and McGunagle explained to CUA Law students the process of providing legislative drafting services to the committees, Members of the House of Representatives, and U.S. Senators. They each emphasized the importance of providing their services in a non-partisan, impartial, and confidential basis. They also explained that their goal is to work with their clients (the committee, Members, and Senators) to understand their policy preferences in order to draft clear, concise, and effective legislation.
