This set of checklists can help policy advisers and law makers with the development and review of legislative reform. The checklists are an extract from Appendix 1 of David Goddard, Making Laws That Work: How Laws Fail, and How We Can Do Better (Hart Publishing, 2022).

A Word format of the checklists is also provided below, to allow you to adjust the content to your own requirements if necessary.

A copy of Justice Goddard’s presentation on his book and the checklists are available at Making Laws That Work.

G-REG, the Government Regulatory Practice Initiative, recently hosted a webinar of Justice Goddard presenting on the topic to MBIE, which is now available at Making laws that work – Justice David Goddard
