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.
We carry out research and consultations to
- eliminate anomalies
- recommend repeal of obsolete and unnecessary enactments
- reduce of the number of separate enactments
- simplify and modernise the law of Jersey.
Our recommendations are considered by the Government of Jersey and the assembly of the States of Jersey.
The Commissioners are unpaid; we 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
