This LLM dissertation suggests that the process of devolution has affected the quality of legislation in Wales. The author argues that the quality of devolved Welsh legislation has been influenced by ineffective legal terminology in the Welsh language available to make the drafting of Welsh consistent with English drafting and on its own with the policy. In addition it is suggested that the quality of Welsh legislation has been affected by problems of inaccessibility due to amendment, cross reference and inter related provisions.
