Questions about court reform? This report has (most of) the answers
The Legal Education Foundation has published a comprehensive and insightful report by leading legal journalist Joshua Rozenberg QC on the court reform programme, from origins to implementation.
The court reform programme will fundamentally change how litigants interact with the justice system, though in precisely what way remains to be seen.
In this lengthy but very readable report, Joshua Rozenberg QC, commissioned by the Legal Education Foundation, examines the origins of the need for reform, including the history of HMCTS, and critically evaluates the way in which the need for modernisation in the court system has been implemented.
The report will be updated as and when more information about the reforms become available.
We would recommend the investing in the long read for a really comprehensive understanding of the work leading up to, and the likely progress of, the reform programme.
UPDATE: There has been a recent update covering HMCTS plans for 2019. This is particularly relevant considering the Justice Committee inquiry.
