Structure, organisations and key people
The Australian Law Reform Commission is an independent statutory authority whose function is to provide effective, independent and timely advice to the Attorney-General and Parliament. The Commission conducts inquiries into, and reviews of, specific areas of the law and legal practice referred to it by the federal Attorney-General. In conducting an inquiry, the Commission undertakes comprehensive, quality research, engages in wide-spread consultation, and canvasses policy reform options. The Commission then makes recommendations for reform and reports to the Federal Parliament through the Attorney-General.
