The Commission has been asked by the Attorney-General to conduct a review of the laws of succession. The Victorian review follows a nationwide project conducted by the National Committee for Uniform Succession Laws, established by the Standing Committee of Attorneys-General (SCAG).

The purpose of the review is to ensure that Victorian law operates justly, fairly and in accordance with community expectations. Among the areas that the Commission has been specifically asked to review are family provision, intestacy, administration of smaller estates and the regulation of legal practitioners as executors.

The Commission is due to present a final report to the Attorney-General by 1 September 2013.
