  • Litigation reform is essential. Ten years after Woolf and there are still some fundamental problems with the system. Jackson was handicapped from the start- how can you look at costs without looking at the system? Will this even amount to anything? It just seems like a waste of time, effort and money for everyone concerned

  • You could see this as the MoJ trying to appease the MR. Putting one set of PI reforms on hold for the litigation review is probably a strategic step meant as an olive branch from Jack Straw to Anthony Clarke.

  • Why should we wait around so they can play politics? We've all put a lot of time and effort into the Pi reforms but there is a lack of political will to see it through. Fortunately there is a desire from the profession to see it through.
    What seems to have been forgotten here is the person who has the claim. What happens to them while the government fights the judiciary?
    Access to justice? I think not.

  • there is still a degree of tension between the MoJ and the MR- this all stems from the fact that the judiciary was never consulted on the abolition of the Lord Chancellor role. It is safe to say that whatever Jackson says it will probably not find favour with the MoJ.
