Consultation on a Separate Legal Jurisdiction for Wales
Currently, laws made in Wales, for Wales, still form part of the law of England and Wales. This is because England and Wales share a single legal jurisdiction. This is not the case in Scotland and Northern Ireland who have separate legal jurisdictions.
There has been much discussion about whether or not Wales should also be a separate legal jurisdiction. In 2011, the First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones made a speech to the Legal Wales Conference announcing the need for a public debate on the issue of a Separate Legal Jurisdiction for Wales.
The purpose of the consultation is to seek views on the specific aspects of a potential Welsh jurisdiction and the underlying issues beneath the broader questions of:
- what is meant by the term “separate legal jurisdiction”;
- whether there are any essential features for the existence of a separate legal jurisdiction and, if so, what they might be;
- what the consequences of having a separate Welsh legal jurisdiction might be; and
- what the potential advantages and disadvantages of a separate Welsh legal jurisdiction would be.
