The Legal Interoperability team would like to invite you to the September BLSI Virtual Breakfast, “Digital-Ready Drafting: Strategies and Considerations.” In today’s fast-paced digital landscape, the need for adaptable and effective legislation is more critical than ever. Join us as we explore the concept of ‘digital-ready drafting,’ a term introduced by Better Regulation Tool #28. Discover how this plays a key role in shaping legislative acts that are not just fit for the digital age but also lend themselves to automatic implementation.

Among other things, our speakers will delve into drafting clear legislation for swift implementation; the power of “Rule as Code” as a transformative drafting approach that also enables testing prior to adoption; and the importance of multidisciplinary teams in co-drafting rules that are both human and machine-readable.

Whether you’re a policymaker, legal professional, IT specialist, or simply curious about the future of digital governance, this event offers a unique opportunity to gain valuable insights and engage in thought-provoking discussions.
