Legislation is a primary source of the law governing our society. The Law Drafting Division is responsible for drafting all legislation proposed by the government. It also vets all non-government Bills and all subsidiary legislation put forward by non-government entities to make sure that they comply with the general form of Hong Kong SAR legislation. The division is also responsible for ensuring that the published version of Hong Kong’s legislation on the Hong Kong e-Legislation website (HKeL) is up to date. Drafting counsel are committed to fulfilling these important roles.
