Legislative Briefs

In the spirit of abiding by our mandate, mission-vision, and focal service areas, PRLS initiates works (referred here as “Legislative Briefs”) that are timely relevant and essential to providing succinct scrutiny and analysis of select legislative measures, agendas, concerns, and existing laws.

Legislative Research Notes (LRN) are composed of curated information presented through collected facts, descriptions, and statistics that are evaluated based on their relevance, soundness, and their potential to enrich and substantiate discussions on legislation proposed by the Bangsamoro Parliament. LRN is specifically written and designed towards helping members of the Parliament as well as members of parliamentary and statutory committees, in crafting sound and rational laws for the Bangsamoro.

Legal Opinions (LO) refer to a response to an existing query on legal matters and review of legal documents affecting the Bangsamoro Parliament upon request from a Member of the Parliament and/or Parliamentary Professionals.

Legal Primers (LP) are summarized versions of Bangsamoro Autonomy Acts underscoring salient provisions therein.

Below is a list of Legislative Briefs.
