ACEDS UK is hosting a panel discussion including members of the Disclosure Working Group, DWG (a wide range of judges, lawyers and experts tasked to propose amendments to the Civil Procedure Rules, CPR, in order to reduce the cost, scale and complexity of disclosure). The purpose of the panel presentation will be to outline:
Why the Civil Procedure Rule addressing disclosure (31) needs reform.
How the DWG was established and what it hopes to achieve.
What amendments are proposed to rule 31 and what the new draft rule and Disclosure Review Document (DRD) looks like.
What’s still left to do between now and the ratification of these changes and how can the UK eDisclosure community help with the adoption of these changes.
Following this presentation, the audience will be given the opportunity to ask questions and encouraged to comment on the proposals. Come along and have your say to shape the new rules!
