A key part of ALICE’s work involves collaborating with students to draft progressive model laws, like the ALICE Model Fair Debt Buying Practices Act. Starting the drafting process can often be daunting for those without prior experience. There are a variety of resources that we find useful when starting a draft. The ALICE Drafting Manual (attached below) is one such resource that we provide to drafters working with us. The Manual is a great technical resource for drafters, laying out the necessary elements for a model law, formatting rules and template, and drafting rules.
ALICE is in the process of updating the 2013 Manual, so the version here is a bit out of date, but it is a valuable resource regardless. We will provide the updated version as soon as it is ready. If you are interested in learning more about drafting, contact ALICE at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the ALICE library.
