Question papers

The LRC uses question papers to inquire about a particular issue or point of law. Questions papers are generally shorter and more specific than consultation papers.

The Law Reform Commission publications listed here are part of a collection dating back to 1966. Each publication deals with the law at the time it was first published and may not necessarily represent the current law. For advice concerning the current law please consult your legal practitioner.
