40 Year Timeline of the Australian Law Reform Commission
To mark the occasion, the Commission has produced a graphic timeline on its website.
The timeline contains "snapshots of pivotal moments, sound bites from eminent alumni, photos and more."
Since its foundation in 1975, the Commission has played an important role in independently researching, consulting on and evaluating Australia’s laws and legal frameworks.
Many Canadian provinces still have law reform commissions but the federal Law Commission of Canada was abolished in 2006 by the recently defeated Conservative government of Stephen Harper.
