8830 Law Revision Commission
Mission Statement

The California Law Revision Commission (Commission) has the responsibility to make a continuing substantive review of California statutory and decisional law, to recommend legislation to make needed reforms, and to make recommendations to the Governor and Legislature for revision of the law on major topics (as assigned by the Legislature) that require detailed study and cannot easily be handled in the ordinary legislative process.

The Commission consists of seven gubernatorial appointees plus one Senator, one Assembly Member, and the Legislative Counsel. The Commission's work is independent, nonpartisan, and objective.
