The Commonwealth Association of Law Reform Agencies Conference 2015

On 11 and 12 April, the Scottish Law Commission hosted the CALRAS conference, bringing together law commissioners and associated organisations from across the Commonwealth.  The conference heard from Lord Carloway, who gave his perspective on lawyers as law reformers, how law reform agencies can maintain their independence from Government, how law reform agencies can engage with their stakeholders and on the implementation of law reform programmes.  Over 100 delegates attended, in what was the Scottish Law Commission’s 50th anniversary year.
