Te Aka Matua o te Ture | Law Commission launched this review with the publication of its Terms of Reference in October 2021.
We published our Preliminary Issues Paper in November 2022. Consultation on that paper closed on 3 March 2023.
We will carry out a second round of public consultation early in 2024. This will be supported by a longer consultation document that will address the current law in more detail and propose some options for reform.
You can subscribe to receive updates on this review, including an update when our consultation document is released. We would like to hear from you during the consultation. Your feedback will help us make recommendations on the law.
After our second round of consultation, we will prepare our final report. This will recommend to the Government how the law should be reformed in this area. We intend to provide our final report to the Minister of Justice by the end of 2024.
