LAW REFORM COMMITTEE WEB SURVEY – WE ARE SEEKING YOUR VIEWS

The Law Reform Committee is seeking the views of the Bar on areas of law reform which it could usefully proactively consider and is asking members of the Bar to complete a short web survey (which should take no more than a couple of minutes) to let us know areas of law reforms which you would like the LRC to consider on behalf of the Bar. The survey can be found on the Bar Council website at www.barcouncil.org.uk/lrc.
