The Jersey Law Commission

simplifying and modernising our island’s laws

Publications

We publish two kinds of law reform reports:
  • consultation papers (seeking views on how the law should be changed)
  • followed by a final topic report (containing our recommendations).
We also contribute to issues of law reform by way of other publications.
