The Law Reform Commission of Western Australia helps keep the law up to date and relevant to the needs of society by making recommendations for the reform of areas of law referred to by the Attorney General. Final reports are tabled in Parliament as required by the Law Reform Commission Act 1972.
A reference to the commission may result from a proposal previously submitted by the commission to the Attorney General. In this regard, the commission and the Attorney General may consider proposals for law reform made by members of the public. The commission welcomes suggestions for law reform projects. The terms of reference can be found at the Law Reform Commission's website.
The commission has three part-time members appointed by the Governor of Western Australia, although the commission may consist of up to five members (two full-time and three part-time).
The Law Reform Commission's publications are available free of charge from the website or can be purchased from the State Law Publisher. The review of the Criminal and Civil Justice System is available at public libraries in Western Australia.
