Last November 28, 2019, an International Workshop on Legislative Drafting took place at the University of Lisbon School of Law.
The workshop was organized by the “Common Rules for Legislative Drafting in Portuguese-speaking Countries and Regions” research project, developed by the Lisbon Centre for Research in Public Law, and it was held in Portuguese.
The topic of the workshop was “What most importantly happened in the Portuguese-speaking countries and regions in 2019”, regarding Legislation and Legislative Drafting. The workshop speakers came from the 9 Portuguese-speaking jurisdictions: Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Macao Special Administrative Region (China), Mozambique, Portugal, São Tomé and Príncipe and Timor Lorosa´e.
The workshop included a presentation on the Bulletin n. 8 of the Observatório da Legislação Portuguesa (Portuguese Legislation Observatory) – CEDIS / Nova Law School).

On the day after the workshop, November 29, 2019, the research project held its second international plenary meeting at The Fundação Oriente.
The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the second block – out of a set of three blocks – of a draft of common Legislative Drafting criteria, standards and rules in the upper mentioned 9 jurisdictions. The discussion was fruitful and involved the research project’s external consultants and the researchers from the Lisbon team. Some external observers from Cape Verde and Portugal also attended the meeting.
