A Legislative Impacts Assessment (LIA) projects the costs, benefits, and distributional effects of different policy alternatives. LIA helps policy makers select between multiple policy options.

This course prepares legal experts to identify and, where possible, quantify a bill’s financial, economic, social, and environmental impacts. In this course participants also assess the draft law or normative legal act's consistency with other laws and regulations. This course offers an LIA approach that captures the differential impacts that a proposal will have on different groups.
