The Ministry of Justice has today confirmed that implementation of the Jackson reforms will now not take place until April 2013.
Enactment of the new rules was scheduled for October this year but they have been receiving a rough ride in the House of Lords. Legal Aid reforms had already been put back to April 2013 and many groups were calling on the MoJ to do the same with the changes to the Civil Procedural rules as they often go hand in hand with Legal Aid in particular the use of After the Event Insurance.
Interested parties are still waiting for draft rules to be provided by the working committee. These were expected before the end of 2011 but it seems these two have been delayed. Is this because both sides are unable to agree or are the Jackson reforms unworkable?
