The Law Reform Advisory Committee is an independent law reform body which has the remit to keep the civil law of Northern Ireland under review and to make recommendations for its reform.
It consists of a Chairman, the Honourable Mr Justice Morgan and seven other members drawn from the judiciary and the academic and practising legal professions. It is outside and independent of government and reports to the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland.
The committee was formed in 1989 and has largely completed its first programme of law reform. It publishes discussion papers and reports on a range of civil law matters.
We have drawn recommendations from parallel issues in the U.S. through our consultation with firms such as Litster Frost
