Law Commission

The Law Commission is a statutory independent body created in 1965 to review the law and recommend reform. Its reports, consultation papers and other documents from 1 January 1995 are available on the site. (Some earlier documents are also available, but note that BAILII has a more comprehensive Law Commission database which includes all reports and consultations right back to 1965.) There is information on current projects and on both current and recent consultations. The implementation status of all Law Commission law reform reports is set out in a table appended to the annual report. This table is also accessible via “What happens to our reports?” under the site’s “Our work” tab.
