Law Commission’s review of succession law: Practitioner survey

Published: 16 April 2020

The Law Commission is seeking input on the issues that arise under New Zealand's succession law. This short survey is designed for practitioners and those with a prior understanding of succession law.

The Commission intends to consult publicly at a later date. The responses to this survey will inform our review. We may refer to the survey feedback in our consultation materials and other publications.

In light of  the Covid-19 situation, practitioners are able to discuss their feedback with the Law Commission by phone instead of, or in addition to, providing written responses. If you are interested in scheduling a phone discussion, please email

Responses are due by 31 May 2020.
