Law Reform

Law reform is the process by which the law is modified and shaped over time to better reflect the social values that society feels are important. The law cannot stand still. A major function of the legal system is to respond to changing values and concerns within society, resolve issues as they develop, overcome problems that occur in legal cases or events, promote equality and respond to scientific or technological developments. Law reform is essential if the law is to remain relevant to a changing society.
Law reform tends to be a gradual process, with widespread community consultation and involvement. Indeed, one criticism of law reform is that it is too slow. That is particularly the case with respect to technology, and advances in technology that impact on crime and criminal behaviour.
