Working in partnership
The Law Commission Act 2009 and the Protocol between the Lord Chancellor (on behalf of Government) and the Law Commission establish a framework for the working relationship between the Commission and Government and set out how the Commission should work with Government departments on law reform projects.
Information about the sponsoring Departments for specific projects can be found on the individual project pages.
