This dissertation examines the ways in which pre-legislative scrutiny at the pre-drafting stage enhances the drafter’s performance in the first and second of Thornton’s stages of drafting process, thus leading to greater effectiveness of legislation. The author demonstrates how Thornton’s first and second stages of drafting process affect the effectiveness of legislation, showing how the stages of understanding and analysis of a legislative proposal allow the legislative drafter the ability to achieve his or her drafting function in the same way as expected by the policy maker.
