About Solomon Islands Law Reform Commission
The Solomon Islands Law Reform Commission reviews the existing laws of the Solomon Islands in accordance with references given by the Minister for Justice and Legal Affairs.
A reference can advise the Commission to review an area of the law, or direct it to review and report on specific questions or issues.
The Commission completes its work when it sends a report containing recommendations for reform of the law to the Minister for Justice and Legal Affairs. It is the role of Parliament to implement some or all of those recommendations and make changes to the law.
LRC services include:
- Reviewing laws with a view to the systematic development and reform of the law.
- Making recommendations in relation to the creation of laws to which this Act applies.
- Making recommendations in relation to the consolidation of laws and the repeal of laws that are obsolete or unnecessary.
- Making recommendations in relation to the restatement, codification, amendment or reform of traditional or customary laws.
- Making recommendations in relation to the development of new approaches and concepts of the law in keeping with the changing needs of the Solomon Islands and members of society.
