“There is much that is of value in this book, which certainly does provide a clear and detailed guide to the novice drafter” – David Miers,
Journal of Legislative Studies Volume 16, No. 4, 2010
“Principles of Legislative and Regulatory Drafting is a short work comprising just over 200 pages and is all the better for that...Too many legal works are marred by too much detail and laying cases one on top of the other to build a veritable tower of confusion...McLeod controls references to cases with a tight rein; the references to cases are relevant and the quotations pithy and to the point.
I have carried this book about with me for some months now and consulted it regularly ... I have had the pleasure, not of discovering things for the first time, but of discovering and remembering them for myself with the assistance of this volume.
The book has acted as a valuable refresher for me; it has changed my practice in some areas. It has been a welcome resource to be used for thinking things out again.
There is much in this book not only for officials and neophyte drafters but also for those with more experience ... Thank you, Ian McLeod.” – John Moloney,
