The relationship between the actors in the law making process is governed by the doctrine of separation of powers. Scholarly literature state that each of these actors is interdependent on the other and no single agency is able to exercise complete authority. The doctrine, however, can be extended to enable the three branches to act as checks and balances on each other. The study inquires into how the relationship between and amongst the actors in the legislative process covering both the legislative drafting (not covered under the doctrine of separation of powers) and the lawmaking processes can be modelled without infringing on the doctrine of separation of powers. We analyse the application of artificial intelligent approach to modelling and propose the application of agent technology in modelling this relationship
