CJC to review impact of Jackson Reforms

As the one year anniversary of the Jackson Reforms approaches, the Civil Justice Council (CJC) has invited legal professionals to give their account on the impact of the changes. The CJC is looking for feedback from solicitors, judges and other court users on how the reforms have had a practical effect on:

- The funding of civil litigation in the light of changes to conditional fee agreements and qualified one-way cost shifting

- The types of cases being taken on (and not being taken on) by law firms

- Experiences of costs budgeting and the management of cases through the courts

The conference will provide a forum for discussion among the representatives of stakeholders such as, the judiciary, practitioners, clients, major court users and any other interested parties.

The judge in charge of implementing the reforms, Mr Justice Ramsey, is currently in the process of conducting a review of the most pressing issues that have caused the most concern.

To anyone who wishes to submit their views on the subject, the CJC urges them to submit their material electronically to cjc@judiciary.gsi.gov.uk. The deadline is Friday 7th March at 5pm and all submissions should be in Word format and not longer than 3,000 words. The CJC also request that submissions refrain from heavy use of colour/logos and that paragraphs be numbered.

Following the CJC conference in March, the evidence is likely to be published.
