The Academy for Legislation is the most important educational institute for legislative lawyers in the Netherlands. The Academy selects legal professional graduates to take part in a training programme it has developed to become a legislative lawyer. In a broad sense, it promotes the development and sharing of knowledge in this field.
Legislation has an important function for the stability and development of countries. The Academy values the sharing of knowledge with countries that are in the process of building a democratic rule of law while supporting and strengthening the legal profession in the country. To this end the Academy is involved in developing training programmes and other forms of cooperation.
The Academy for Government Lawyers is a sister institute and is specialised in training legal professionals working in the Dutch central government, whose work includes providing legal advice, handling objections and appeals and drafting contracts and agreements.
