Abstract

Fitting to a modern-day Law Commission publication, this collection of essays is rather lengthy (some 39 chapters over 400 pages), but it has been built to last. From conference to collection, the editors have brought together a strikingly impressive range of contributors, including past and present Commissioners, Chairs of the Law Commissions, Chief Executives, as well as independent academics and parliamentarians. Marking the fiftieth anniversary of the Law Commission of England and Wales and the Scottish Law Commission, the collection offers something of a celebration of the Commissions’ good works, but principally stands as a unique insight into the dynamics (personal and institutional) of a cherished reform institution.
