Further to this post in which we reminded practitioners to submit their opinions in response to the CJC reviewing the impact of ‘Jackson reforms’ one year on, the conference has now taken place and the CJC will now "draw up a list of follow-up activities and discuss Professor Peysner’s final report at its next meeting on 1 May 2014, with a view to its publication very shortly afterwards."
The CJC has also released the paper produced by Lord Justice Jackson in advance of the conference and are to release shortly the close to 70 submission papers that they received.
In his paper, Jackson states that he still thinks it too early to reach balanced conclusions. He says "the reforms will need time to bed in, so that both judges and practitioners can become comfortable with them". Access to justice, he says, has not been reduced, citing no apparent reduction in the numbers of new claims issued or new claims notified rather MOJ statistics show that there was a slight increase in new claims during the first six months.
What do you think? Did you submit a paper? Do you agree with Jackson when he states that respondents to the CJC may not be a fair cross-section of opinion within the profession?
