Changing the Law

A Practical Guide to Law Reform

Law is always in need of reform. To enhance justice and legal efficiency, and contribute to socio-economic development, reform needs to be of a high standard. Across the Commonwealth, there is a need for information and guidance about the different ways in which law reform can be undertaken.

Changing the Law: A Practical Guide to Law Reform is designed to provide practical assistance to users seeking to deliver high-standard law reform outcomes. Using examples and experience from around the Commonwealth and beyond, it guides users through each phase of a successful reform, from initiation to final implementation. It is the first general guide to conducting law reform in Commonwealth countries.
