Kennedys seminar on 12th March in Birmingham – Surviving Jackson: one year on

Solicitors Kennedy’s gave a seminar this week with the title Surviving Jackson. Many of the points made in it were live-tweeted and the tweets have been collected here by academic and lawyer John Bates @MrJohnBates. They provoke thought.

Kennedys is running a seminar with the same title in Birmingham on 12 March from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. The speakers are Edward Pepperall QC who is a member of the Civil Procedure Rule Committee and Kerry Underwood who is perhaps the most vocal critic of the Jackson reforms. There is more information about this event here.

Knowing the rules is a good start, something which seems to have passed many solicitors by (read some of the judgments if you think I am being overly disparaging here). Anyone might be forgiven, however, for missing some of the implications of the Mitchell judgment and its confusing aftermath. This seminar seems a very good opportunity to try and keep up.

If you are affected by this and are not following barrister Gordon Exall’s Civil Litigation Brief then you should be.
