  • Assist with uploading documents to LegStat (LegStat is a database of proposed and draft amendments to legislation. Any new documents that are downloaded and summarised will be uploaded to this database.)
  • Formatting/Editing of Legislation documents (As part of a team of authors, update existing documents in Microsoft Word to show current requirements. Then publish these documents using a publishing package called VISTA.)
