The highlight of working with an MP so far has been the realization that our Members of Parliament work much harder than we give them credit for. This is something that I can vouch for, given the number of Bill Summaries and issue briefs I’ve had to prepare for my MP, many of them at extremely short notice.
The Legislative Assistants to Members of Parliament (LAMP) Fellowship places one legislative assistant to work with one MP for a period of 11 months. The Fellowship exposes LAMP Fellows to the working of Parliament and the legislative process. The Fellowship encourages the best and the brightest young individuals to get involved in public service.
The primary role of a LAMP Fellow is to provide customised research support to the assigned MP they work with for the entire duration of the Fellowship. This would entail providing research inputs to help them fulfill their parliamentary duties such as asking questions, raising matters of public importance, participating in debates, writing speeches, drafting private member Bills, among others.
