Automated Vehicles: Alex Glassbrook leads Bar Council team responding to Law Commission’s third consultation paper on AV law

25th March 2021

The Bar Council of England and Wales has published its response to the Law Commission’s third consultation paper on the law of automated vehicles. Alex Glassbrook led the Bar Council’s team, writing the response with Adam King (of QEB Hollis Whiteman) and Lucy McCormick (of Henderson Chambers).

This is a detailed response, by the Law Reform Committee of the Bar Council, to the last stage of the Law Commission’s three-year consultation on AV law. The Law Commission proposes significant changes to British road transport law, to accommodate automated vehicle technologies – from automated cars to delivery robots – including new methods of regulating vehicles, assuring safety and attributing civil and criminal responsibility. The Law Commission’s review of AV law is due to conclude at the end of 2021, with regulation likely to follow.
