Thornton's Legislative Drafting remains the leading professional title that UK legislative drafters internationally use for guidance when drafting new legislation or amending existing legislation. This fifth edition retains the professional approach to drafting and the traditional system of drafting stages promoted in previous editions, as well as providing examples from the Commonwealth. Completely refreshed and updated, the book provides guidance through the five stages of the drafting process, and includes coverage of the legislative sentence, the structure of an Act, as well as the drafting of preliminary, substantive, final, and special provisions. It demonstrates contemporary drafting conventions through fresh examples of recent UK legislation, and it shows the developments in their historical context through the use of selected older examples. Thornton's Legislative Drafting also provides examples with modern expressions and excerpts from current legislation of both larger and smaller Commonwealth jurisdictions, as well as of the US.

Review:

Thornton's Legislative Drafting, in this rendering by Professor Xanthaki, will continue for many years to be a principal player in galvanising good legislative drafting practice in the Commonwealth and beyond. -- Bilika H Simamba * The Loophole * This new edition is as much a delight as the previous editions, both by its inclusion of a wider variety of international examples and by its general additions; it significantly enhances the tradition of Thornton and will be warmly welcomed by the entire legislative drafting community in the English-speaking world. -- Daniel Greenberg * Statute Law Review * Thornton's Legislative Drafting, in this rendering by Professor Xanthaki, will continue for many years to be a principal player in galvanising good legislative drafting practice in the Commonwealth and beyond. -- Bilika H Simamba * The Loophole * This new edition is as much a delight as the previous editions, both by its inclusion of a wider variety of international examples and by its general additions; it significantly enhances the tradition of Thornton and will be warmly welcomed by the entire legislative drafting community in the English-speaking world. -- Daniel Greenberg * Statute Law Review * Thornton's Legislative Drafting is probably the best-known book on the subject in the English-speaking world...An essential reference for those interested in legislative drafting. -- Daniel Lovric * Law Institute Journal (Law Institute of Victoria, Australia) *
