SARAJEVO, Bosnia (November 6,2008) – The EU Police Mission in Bosnia (EUPM) has organized a “Course on Legal Drafting” November 3-5 in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo, aiming to further enhance the knowledge of lawyers and legal experts from the Bosnian state and regional institutions on drafting legal acts.
The course covered topic such as the types and content of legal acts, terminology, grammar and acronyms used, as well as methods of implementing changes to existing pieces of legislation.
A total of 31 representatives from the Bosnian state and regional institutions attended the course along with 10 representatives of EUPM.
“The participants and lecturers considered the initiative very beneficiary for legal drafting process in general,” said Tamer Kilic, EUPM Coordinator of the Legal and Regulatory Unit of the Police Reform Department.
