This lecture will address the significance of the acquisition of primary legislative powers by the National Assembly for Wales for the shared legal system of England and Wales. It will examine the practical implications of these changes and the challenges they bring for both lawyers and the courts and tribunals system. It will also address how the Law Commission has responded to this rapidly accelerating divergence of laws though a project looking at both the form and accessibility of Welsh law.
