Lecture: The Law Commission's supplementary consultation on property and needs

Lecture: The Law Commission's supplementary consultation on property and needs
On 6 February 2012, it was agreed with the Ministry of Justice that the scope of the original project considering matrimonial property, needs and agreements should be extended to include a targeted review of two aspects of financial provision on divorce and the dissolution of a civil partnership. The Law Commission is reviewing the law relating to needs, examining the extent to which one spouse or civil partner should be required to meet the other's needs following divorce or dissolution. The other area under review is non-matrimonial property, a concept used by the courts to describe property that was acquired by either party before the marriage or civil partnership, or received by gift or inheritance at any time. The Law Commission is considering the way that such property should be treated on divorce or dissolution.
In a lecture on Monday 5 November at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, Professor Elizabeth Cooke will introduce this supplementary consultation paper. The Law Commission invites comment and discussion on these issues and the consultation period finishes on 11 December 2012.
This event is FREE but those wishing to attend should register in advance by emailing IALS.Events@sas.ac.uk
