Understanding the Legislative Process for Attorneys

1h 1m

Created on September 29, 2020




Working knowledge of the legislative process is valuable to the application and interpretation of the law. Yet many attorneys go through law school without getting a realistic understanding of how laws are created. No matter what type of law you practice, a better understanding of the legislative process will enhance your perspective. 

This program will provide an overview of the legislative process from a day-to-day perspective. It will give attorneys a better understanding of how the law is practically created and how that impacts interpretation and application. While relevant to any attorney who wishes to deepen their understanding of creating law, it will be especially valuable to attorneys who intend to interact with Congress members and congressional staff.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Develop a practical understanding of how the legislative process works - from bill ideas to getting a bill signed into law

  2. Examine the practical application of constitutional law principles within the legislative process

  3. Analyze and discuss how the creation of laws affects the ways we apply and interpret them
