The research project Rules for Legislative Drafting in Portuguese-speaking Countries and regions” is developed by a research team from the Lisbon Research Centre for Public Law. The scope of the project is legislative drafting in its formal dimension and its goal is to promote and define common legislative drafting criteria, standards and rules within the legal orders of the Portuguese-speaking countries and regions: Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Timor-Leste, Guinea-Bissau, Macao Special Administrative Region, Mozambique, Portugal and São Tomé and Príncipe. It should be noted that the aim of the project is not to standardize laws within the Portuguese-speaking countries and regions but to find common formal rules to draft laws in those countries and regions.

The IAL website has now a tab to promote the outputs – articles and presentations in conferences and workshops – of this research project.
