Too much of a good thing: are cases becoming over managed?
Monday 8 November 2021 | 10:00 – 10:50 GMT
The last few years have heralded significant increased judicial intervention in the management of commercial trials. Recent notable examples are found in the areas of disclosure, witness statements and costs budgeting, together with the development of more specialised courts. This roundtable discussion will concern the implications (both good and bad) of these (and other) developments and where the balance should be struck between the all too often competing demands of technology, party autonomy and the interests of other courts users, set against the background of ever-spiralling costs.
The summit will take place in-person at etc venues St Paul’s, 200 Aldersgate, London EC1A 4HD. Virtual access will be available to those based outside of the UK.
