Cross-party Group on Legal Issues
The Cross Party Group on Legal Issues will act as a forum for discussion of legal issues relevant to Wales and its legal profession. This will include consideration of the opportunities and challenges presented by the increasing divergence between the law in Wales and in England, including the possibility of a separate or distinct legal jurisdiction for Wales.
The group will seek to strengthen the relationship between the National Assembly for Wales and the legal profession in Wales. Initial work will include encouraging Assembly Members, as well as solicitors, barristers and other legal professionals in Wales, to engage with the Commission on Justice in Wales, and then consider the implications of its Report.
The Group will promote clarity, accessibility and understanding of law applicable in Wales.
