Law Commission’s Review of Succession Law: Practitioner Survey

Publication Date 
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.
