Law Commission - Similar bodies

A body established by the Law Commissions Act (1965) for England and Wales (with a separate commission for Scotland), appointed from the judiciary and from practising and academic lawyers. Its function is to examine the law with a view to its systematic development, reform, and codification, and to suggest the removal of obsolete and anomalous rules. While influential, it has no power to change the law.
