Cameron Markby Hewitt acted as host to a delegation of four French senators which was in the UK to study Lord Woolf's Access to Justice report. The French are interested in Woolf's recommendations and in alternative dispute resolution, following a similar report, Quels Moyens Pour Quelle Justice?, last year from the French Senate's Law Commission, which came up with 36 recommendations of its own. The delegation, which was invited by James Burnett-Hitchcock, Camerons' senior commercial litigation partner, met up with senior figures, including Lord Woolf, vice-chancellor Sir Richard Scott, chair of the Law Society's civil litigation committee Michael Napier and senior members of the Lord Chancellor's Department responsible for implementing Woolf's reforms.
