Abstract

This essay offers a substantive introduction to the special issue on mending the legislative process. Discontent with the legislative process seems to be pervasive. But how could we move from the widely-shared lament that the lawmaking process is broken to thinking on ways to mend it? This essay sketches the requisite preliminaries for answering this question. It outlines ways to approach the problems with the contemporary legislative process and to think about solutions in a systematic way, and introduces the contributions in this issue.

Keywords: Legislative process, broken process, pathologies in the legislative process, due process of lawmaking, legislative due process, parliamentary reform, congressional reform, legisprudence
