FOR LITIGATORS USING THE BUSINESS AND PROPERTY COURTS IN LEEDS

Implementation of the pilot scheme on disclosure in the Business and Property Courts:  A discussion with Chief Master Marsh​

The Date: 12 November 2018

The Time: 5.45pm to 6:45pm.
 
The Venue: BPP University Limited, Whitehall 2, Whitehall Quay, LEEDS LS1 4HR

Background
 
Earlier this year, the Business and Property Courts (BPC) confirmed reforms of the current rules on disclosure would come into place on 1 January 2019. Following the Disclosure Working Group (DWG),

In anticipation of the launch of the Disclosure Pilot in January 2019, Chief Master Marsh is attending Leeds to discuss the pilot and to hear the thoughts of Court users. Court users are invited to attend a meeting with Chief Master Marsh to discuss and give feedback on the disclosure pilot.
 
The pilot will apply to all cases in the BPCs that are yet to have disclosure ordered (including those issued before 1 January 2019). The key documents can be located at:
 
https://www.judiciary.uk/publications/announcement-that-cprc-has-approved-disclosure-pilot
 
This link has details of the draft practice direction and the disclosure documents parties will be required to complete.

Please note that Chief Master Marsh will not be going through the drafting in detail or discussing how the Courts will implement the pilot, so it would be useful if attendees could (prior to the meeting) read the documents.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions and to comment on the proposals at the event, but it would assist if you could send your questions to sue.harris@walkermorris.co.uk by 5 November 2018 if at all possible.
 
How to book: This event is open to all members of Leeds Law Society, the Bar and any practitioners who use the Business and Property Courts in Leeds. We are expecting a lot of interest so please book early to avoid disappointment.
