The Jersey Law Commission

simplifying and modernising our island’s laws

What we do

The Jersey Law Commission is an independent body set up by the States of Jersey in 1996 to identify and examine aspects of law with a view to their development and reform.

This includes in particular

  • the elimination of anomalies
  • the repeal of obsolete and unnecessary enactments
  • the reductions of the number of separate enactments
  • and generally the simplification and modernisation of the law.

We carry out reviews of different aspects of Jersey law, consult on proposals for reform, and make recommendations to the Chief Minister of Jersey. The Commissioners are unremunerated and work on the reform projects part-time.

We welcome comments on our current projects and suggestions for future areas of work. Our contact details are here; alternatively leave an online message below.
