Abstract: Laws are an indispensable element for the smooth running of any system of governance. Since Nepal entered into federalism, efforts and achievements that should have happened in law implementation and enforcement have not been satisfactorily completed. In recent years, Nepal’s law-making processes have been rife with issues. Parliament is not very active, and even parliamentary committees are not working as expected. In some committees, bills have been stuck for three years. To date, no law has yet been enacted regarding the drafting of a law. It is important to formulate such a law to determine the basic criteria related to the creation and publication of legislation and to maintain uniformity and quality in law making.This paper provides a descriptive analysis of Nepal's law-making processes. The analysis is based on the constitution and documents issued by the Federal Parliament. The author is a member of the Federal Parliament, and some of the issues that the author has seen and experienced inform this analysis. The paper focuses on developments after the promulgation of the federal constitution in 2015 and excludes subnational-level issues.
