Today marks the twenty-year anniversary of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPRs) coming into force

Share this post:


The CPRs constituted the most fundamental reform of the civil justice system for over a century and have also impacted how the criminal and family courts operate. The way experts work was significantly altered. The Lord Chancellor instructed Lord Woolf to review the rules and procedure of the civil courts in England and Wales who went on to write the seminal report, Access to Justice, and then the CPRs.

Of course, here at Finch, many of us are familiar with Part 35 or the CPRs, including Steve Bennett and Richard Brown are going to hear Lord Woolf speak at the Bond Solon Annual Expert Witness Conference on Friday 8 November 2019 in Westminster.
