The CJC is conducting a wide ranging consultation as part of a “holistic” review of costs, focusing in particular on:

  • Costs budgeting;
  • Guideline hourly rates;
  • Costs under pre-action protocols/portals and the digital justice system;
  • The consequences of the extension of fixed costs.

This LSLA event forms part of the Civil Justice Council’s consultation and will be an opportunity for attendees to contribute to it. Lord Justice Birss will be joined by a panel of CJC Cost Working Group members and members of the LSLA for a discussion of all aspects of the consultation with a particular focus on commercial litigation. The panel will take questions and be pleased to hear comments.

The panel discussion will be followed by drinks.

This is a free event but tickets must be booked through the LSLA website.
