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 the number of separate enactments,
simplify and modernise the law of Jersey. Our recommendations are considered by the Chief Minister of Jersey and the States Assembly. The Commissioners are unpaid and work on the reform projects part-time.
