MILC now includes Revised Acts

MILC now includes Revised Acts

Murdoch's Irish Legal Companion now includes the Revised Acts as published by the Law Reform Commission.

The Revised Acts are fully searchable on MILC. 

A Revised Act is an administrative consolidation of that Act.  It brings together in a single text all amendments and changes to an Act, making the law more accessible for all users.  In Ireland, as in most other states, once an Act on a specific legal topic is enacted it is often amended subsequently, sometimes in significant respects.  For example, the Planning and Development Act 2000 has been amended by almost 40 Acts since it was originally enacted.  The costly exercise of assembling, reading and understanding the amendments made to the 2000 Act that would otherwise fall on all users of legislation (including those regulated by the 2000 Act, members of the public who want to look up the law, lawyers and their clients, and civil and public servants) is avoided by the availability of a consolidated Revised Act version of the Planning and Development Act 2000.
