The Civil Justice Council (CJC) has asked the claims sector to provide it with written submissions on the impact made by the Jackson reforms.
These will then be used to facilitate discussions on the subject during a conference being held by the CJC in March. Members of the council wish to examine the early signs of the reforms on the civil justice system and have invited representatives of stakeholder groups such as practitioners, the judiciary, consumers, major court users and other interested parties to the conference.
The CJC is looking for opinions on the types of cases being taken on by firms; the funding of civil litigation in the light of changes to CFAs and the introduction of DBAs and QOCS; and experiences of costs budgeting and the management of cases through the courts.
Material should be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Friday 7th March 2014. Submissions should be no more than 3,000 words long, submitted in Word format with as little use of colour or logos as possible and have numbered paragraphs.
