Te Aka Matua o te Ture | Law Commission is committed to consulting the public in our review.
We would like to hear from you in our current consultation. You can make a submission or contact us by [clicking here to go to our online survey – link to ‘Have your say’ section.]
We acknowledge that the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities requires that disabled people are involved in the development of legislation and policies on issues relating to disabled people.
We are working with disabled people and tāngata whaikaha Māori, and their representative organisations, to facilitate accessible consultation processes and maximise the participation of those most affected by the laws relating to adult decision-making capacity.
We will have a second round of consultation in 2023. This will be supported by a longer consultation document that will address the current law in more detail and propose some options for reform.
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 30 June 2024.
