New Ontario Law Commission Officially Launched

The government of Ontario officially launched the province's new Law Commission yesterday in Toronto.

The Law Commission of Ontario is a partnership among Osgoode Hall Law School at York University, the Law Society of Upper Canada, the Ministry of the Attorney General, the Law Foundation of Ontario and the Deans of Ontario's six law schools. Its creation was announced last November (see the December 6, 2006 Library Boy post entitled Ontario Creates Law Reform Commission).

Its role will be to act as an arm's-length independent forum in which to research sensitive legal policy issues and recommend reforms.

Its predecessor, known as the Ontario Law Reform Commission, had been abolished in 1995 by the provincial Conservative government.
