Legislation (2)

This class will discuss how a bill becomes a law by examining several pieces of legislation that were considered by the 2014 Maryland General Assembly. (Bills before the U.S. Congress may also be included in the syllabus.) Public policy considerations, the politics of the legislative process, statutory interpretation, and the drafting of legislation will be discussed. The principal writing assignment will consist of drafting a bill, presenting written and verbal testimony on it at a mock hearing during class, and preparing a strategy memo on how to secure the bill's passage.
