Civil Litigation Costs: the legal profession’s view
Civil Litigation Costs Review Survey
In 2010, Lord Justice Jackson published a major review of the costs of civil litigation (The Jackson Review), with recommendations designed to control the disproportionate costs and promote access to justice. Major aspects of these recommendations have been embodied in the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act, which aims to cut civil litigation costs and reduce the government’s legal aid bill. It comes into force in April 2013 and will have a significant – and controversial – impact on the legal profession.
