Across the Commonwealth, there is a need for information and guidance about the different ways in which law reform can be undertaken. [This book] is designed to provide practical assistance to users seeking to deliver high standard law reform outcomes. Using examples and experience from around the Commonwealth and beyond, it guides users through each phase of a successful reform, from initiation to final implementation. It is the first general guide to conducting law reform in Commonwealth countries."-- Back cover.
