CJC to investigate impact of Jackson


Jackson: first anniversary reflection

The Civil Justice Council (CJC) has begun taking soundings on the “practical impact” of the Jackson reforms ahead of a major conference next month.

With the first anniversary of implementation of the reforms in sight, the CJC said it “wishes to examine early signs of their impact on the civil justice system”.

It said the conference will provide a forum for discussion among representatives of stakeholder groups such as practitioners, the judiciary, consumers, major court users and other interested parties.

Ahead of the conference, the CJC has invites written submissions on what stakeholders have seen over the past year, and in particular on:

Material should be submitted electronically to cjc@judiciary.gsi.gov.uk by 5pm on Friday 7 March. Submissions should be no more than 3,000 words long, be in Word format with as little use of colour or logos as possible; and have numbered paragraphs.

Major submissions will be circulated to delegates ahead of the event in order to help provide a fund of material for discussion on the day. The intention is to publish them after the event.
