Professor Alison Young appointed a Law Commissioner

We are delighted to announce that Professor Alison Young has been appointed a Law Commissioner. 

Alison will take up her five-year appointment in March 2024. During her service, Professor Young will be taking leave from her Faculty post. She will however remain the Sir David Williams Professor of Public Law, and  her Class A Fellowship at Robinson will be unaffected.

The Law Commission is a statutory body charged with keeping the law in England and Wales under review and recommending reform where that is needed. Alison will be the Commissioner responsible for public law and the law in Wales in particular. She succeeds Nicholas Paines KC.

Alison has said: ‘I’m honoured to have been given this opportunity to play an important role in law reform in public law and the law in Wales. I’m looking forward to using the knowledge and expertise I’ve gained from my time at Cambridge to take on this new and exciting challenge’.
