Law Commission consultation on search warrants - Law Society response

6 September 2018

The Law Society has submitted a response to the Law Commission's consultation on the law concerning search warrants.

We are broadly supportive of the Commission's proposals. They will clarify and update the law to ensure that it respects citizens' rights in situations where coercive powers are used, while enabling law enforcement agencies to lawfully investigate crime.
