Law-making in the form of judge-made law and legislation will be introduced, both at a national level and a Community level. It will also consider dispute resolution through the courts and alternatives, statutory interpretation, the criminal and civil justice systems (including Woolf reforms in this area), appeals and judicial review, and evidence in the legal process.
