Feedback on Law Reforms

The Law Society regularly works to provide responses to proposals from the government as well as non-governmental organisations for changes in the law. 

Accordingly we conduct surveys and consultations with the Bar with the view to obtaining data, feedback and providing responses that are constructive and meaningful to helping to raise the level of legal professionalism.

Members and where applicable, the public, are invited to provide feedback on ongoing consultations.

You can refer to past responses.
