It makes recommendations to Parliament, and these recommendations are published in its report series. The Law Commission helps to maintain the quality of New Zealand law to meet the current and future needs of our rapidly changing society. The Commission’s objective is to improve the quality, relevance and effectiveness of New Zealand law by informing and supporting discussion on and making recommendations to Parliament for law reform.
