Law Society response to the Jackson reforms

The Law Society has issued a response to the Civil Justice Council's consultation on the first year of the Jackson reforms, stating that they pose a risk of injustice to clients and a serious reputational risk to solicitors. FFW have already responded to this consultation and we broadly agree with what the Law Society says. Fundamentally the reforms were brought in without proper consideration of the practical consequences on the day to day workings of personal injury cases. Everyone, even the judiciary is struggling with the sense of these reforms and serious consideration must be given to the unnecessary bureaucracy now faced by all. Our Court system has strived for many years to be a streamlined example of Justice; that reputation is at real risk.
