Welcome to the Scottish Law Commission

2015 is a special year for the Commission; it marks our 50th anniversary.  We have been promoting law reform for Scotland for half a century.  See the link below for news on events to mark our golden anniversary.

Much has been achieved during these 50 years. Many areas of Scots law have been transformed on the basis of our recommendations to simplify, update and improve the law. Looking forward, we want to ensure that our recommendations will result in law which is just, principled, responsive and easy to understand. It is therefore critical for us to engage in a thorough and open process of consultation. We welcome the views of as many people as possible in response to our specific consultations.
