In line with the strife of the National Institute for Legislative Studies to support the sustenance of dynamic and effective legislature, its department of Legislative Support Services recently carried out an in-house training to recharge its staff in rendering qualitative services to the Legislature.

The training program treated topics varying from introduction to Legal Research for Policy Briefs/Papers presented by the department’s head, Prof. M.T. Ladan to Techniques in Legislative Drafting Presented by the Legal Adviser at the Institute, Dr. Shuaibu Danwanka.

Some of the staff of the department who were interviewed commended the effort of their department and the Institute at large with the view that the role retraining and reorientation play in institutions cannot be overemphasized; they informed that even the best of scholars experience mental block sometimes, but with constant exchange of ideas, an organization will surely be the best it can be.

The Department of the Legislative Support Services among other things carries out bill drafting and analysis, and providing assistance to members of the legislature in the analysis and drafting of bills.
