Standard multi-track directions—no expert evidence

The following Dispute Resolution precedent provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:

  • Standard multi-track directions—no expert evidence

Standard multi-track directions—no expert evidence

This Precedent is the Gov.uk standard direction order template to use in multi-track cases where no expert evidence is to be adduced. It should be used, in those circumstances, as the parties’ (and the court’s) starting point when seeking or making case management directions (CPR 29.1).

Where single joint expert evidence is proposed or ordered, see Precedent: Standard multi-track directions—single joint expert.

Where additional or alternative directions to those set out in the Precedent may be required (eg for a case management conference, for costs management directions, to allow for compliance with pre-action protocols, to request further information, where your claim is proceeding in a divisional court, etc), see the Gov.uk model paragraphs. These model paragraphs, together with guidance on them, are reflected in Precedent: Standard direction order templates and model paragraphs for multi-track cases.

The courts have indicated they will have little sympathy with parties who seek to use their own firm’s and/or some other hybrid directions instead of the standard direction order templates. The draft directions in this precedent exactly follow the provisions set out in the Gov.uk website.
