Russell Levy in the news

Whose courts are they anyway? Times 28.3.13 Russell Levy says that the implementation of the Jackson reforms to civil procedure, costs and funding, coupled with swingeing cuts in eligibility for legal aid will: destroy the fundamental principle of restitution; confuse and obscure the “English rule” that costs follow the event; and demonstrate for once and for all that the Government and the senior judiciary essentially regard the civil courts as the preserve of business and the wealthy rather than “ordinary” people.
