Being a LAMP Fellow is a very unique experience, and no two LAMP Fellows will have a similar experience with his/her MP. We usually form our opinions on MPs based on what we read in the news or see on TV. However, working closely with an MP has opened my eyes. It has been a fantastic opportunity to be mentored by a Parliamentarian.
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.
