Daniel Greenberg biography

I am a barrister who specialises in legislation.


For 20 years I wrote laws as a member of the Office of the Parliamentary Counsel in 36 Whitehall, London: now I consult, write and teach.


I consult as in-house Parliamentary Counsel in the Parliamentary Team at Berwin Leighton Paisner BLP, where I advise on statutory interpretation, the legislative process and machinery of government.   I also have a legislative drafting practice for legislation in the UK and abroad.


My most important publishing activities are Craies on Legislation and Westlaw UK Annotated Statutes and Insight Encyclopaedia.  I am also the Editor of OUP’s Statute Law Review, the editor of two legal dictionaries and a contributor to the Oxford English Dictionary, and I have written a number of other books and articles.


I lecture on statutory interpretation and legislative drafting as an Associate Research Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies in the University of London and as Visiting Professor of Legislation in the University of Derby.  My training activities include training legislative drafters, civil servants and legislators in the UK and abroad.  I have recently returned from Myanmar where I gave a series of seminars on legislative drafting and statutory interpretation organised by the UNDP.  I also teach and write about Jewish law and ethics


I write occasionally for the Jewish Chronicle; I published a book about conversion to Judaism; I write a blog of occasional thoughts on the Jewish attitude to social issues; and I was an honorary consultant to the Jewish Association of Business Ethics, writing and speaking for them over a number of years, until their sad demise in 2012.


I took part in a public debate with Dayan Lichtenstein and Rabbi Michael Pollack in July 2013 on the subject of whether rabbinic authority can be restored after recent events in the UK and abroad – you can see a brief account of the debate on the United Synagogue website.
