The Africa i-Parliaments Clinic is designed to assist African parliaments draft and enact more effective legislation. From the classroom, you will research and analyze social problems on behalf of your client—either a national or regional African parliament—and propose legislative language to address these problems. You will also research recently passed African statutes and governmental reform for publication on the African Parliamentary Knowledge Network's (APKN) Web-based Africa Parliamentary Information Exchange. Students then have the opportunity to discuss their ideas and findings to other members of the APKN and post their work on the APKN Web site to better stimulate debate on specific issues and to promote the use of evidence-based legislative drafting.
