Jackson reforms seminar :30th April 2014 – A Judge’s approach

With the Jackson Reforms having been with us for a year, Hamlins is holding a seminar to discuss the impact of the reforms.

The main Speaker is District Judge Robert Jordan, who is not only the President of the Association of Her Majesty’s District Judges but also a Judicial College tutor involved in tutoring both County Court and High Court Judges on the Jackson reforms.

There is currently a debate as to whether the reforms have been a success. In particular, whether there have been unintended consequences such as delay or satellite litigation and whether they have caused a serious risk to Justice. Alternatively, have they improved the quality of the Litigators undertaking the work and streamlined the litigation process into a more cost effective and efficient process?

The seminar will consider these issues and discuss the practical steps that can be taken when dealing with the Jackson reforms.

Please contact Peter Jordan for further information.
