Abstract

In this article the Attorney-General explains the background to the formation of a permanent Law Commission which will be largely although not exclusively concerned with what is generally described as law reform. The author explains that the Law Commission will have both a proactive and reactive role. This means that there should be a continuously developing programme as well as the prompt consideration of specific issues that may arise from time to time.

Keywords: Law Commission, New Zealand, law reform
