In this article Professor Palmer emphasises the duty that lawyers have to understand the Parliamentary law-making process to be of help to their clients, and incidentally to help the Parliamentarians make better laws. Lawyers have to act for interest groups and to do so effectively they need to be more understanding of political and economic issues that affect the law-making processes; they need to be policy analysts, and they need to understand better the process of law drafting.
