Welcome to the Scottish Law Commission

The Commission's task is law reform: to recommend ways of simplifying, updating and improving the law of Scotland.

We want to ensure that our recommendations, if implemented, 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 and we welcome the views of as many people as possible in response to our specific consultations.
