The Minister responsible for Te Aka Matua o te Ture | Law Commission, Hon Kris Faafoi, has recently referred two new projects to the Commission: a review of the role of tikanga and te ao Māori concepts in law, and a review of the legislative settings for preventive detention. The Commission anticipates that it will complete its reviews of succession law, class actions and litigation funding and surrogacy in the 2021/22 year. Work on the new projects will commence when capacity becomes available. The Commission’s work on adult decision-making capacity continues.
