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.
