Legislation Advisory Panel

The Legislation Advisory Panel is a panel that considers legislation matters that do not fall under the responsibility of a particular Minister. This is largely legislation relating to the courts and court procedures, probate, wills and succession, and customary law.

The Legislation Advisory Panel was established in 2006 following the move to ministerial government and advises on a number of matters dealt with by the former Legislation Committee.    The Panel, whose membership is drawn from both executive and non-executive members, advises the Chief Minister on a range of legislative matters. These mainly relate to courts, court procedures, and the wider administration of justice; additionally, it reviews reports received from the Jersey Law Commission, established in 1996, on aspects of Jersey law which the Commission considers should be examined with a view to reform.
