The Witness Evidence Working Group (WEWG) has been asked to make recommendations with regard to the current rules and practice concerning factual witness evidence in the Business and Property Courts (BPCs) in the High Court in London (i.e., the Chancery Division, Commercial Court and Technology and Construction Court). A short survey has been put together by the WEWG in order to ask as many court users as possible for their views about the current rules and practice on factual witness evidence in the B&PCs, as well as potential alternatives.
Views are sought on whether the current rules (used in a broad sense) on witness statements ought to remain in their present form and be enforced more rigorously or whether the rules themselves need to be changed and, if so, how. As will be seen, there is a range of possible alternatives and formulations. Not all are mutually exclusive.
More information about the survey and the next stages are contained in the link:
The survey is short and should not take more than 10 minutes to complete. The average response time is around 6 minutes so far.
The closing date for responses is Friday 23rd November.
