The Law Commission is the statutory independent body created by the Law Commissions Act 1965 to keep the law under review and recommend reform where it is needed.
The Commission aims to:
- ensure that the law is as fair, modern, simple and as cost-effective as possible
- conduct research and consultations in order to make systematic recommendations for consideration by Government, and
- codify the law, eliminate anomalies, repeal obsolete and unnecessary enactments and reduce the number of separate statutes.
