The Law Commission has identified some areas of law that may require reform and could be potential projects for its 13th Programme of work. They launched a consultation and JUSTICE responded.
The response focussed on inquiries and codification, streamlining and consolidation. In respect of inquiries, the response emphasised the important public functions that inquiries play and concerns about the eligibility of legal aid to encourage and enable the effective participation of affected members. JUSTICE is very supportive of codification, streamlining and consolidation: all of these can help make the law more available, navigable and understandable.
