Overview

The Law Commission is a statutory independent body. It was created to keep the law under review and, where necessary, to recommend reform of the law to Government. The Law Commission's aims are to ensure that the law is as fair, modern, simple and as cost-effective as possible. It reviews areas of the law that have become unduly complicated, outdated or unfair. It conducts research and consultation in order to: (1) make systematic recommendations for consideration by Parliament, (2) codify the law, (3) eliminate anomalies, (4) repeal obsolete and unnecessary enactments and (5) reduce the number of separate statutes. The functions of the Law Commission are set out in two Acts: Law Commissions Act 1965 and Law Commission Act 2009.

Established by the Law Commissions Act 1965.
