On 1 April, the Law Society’s Civil Justice Section changed its name to the Civil Litigation Section.

So what, you may say?

Well, this: we are here to help civil litigators (whether they are taking action via the courts, arbitration, ADR or whatever). We wanted to make it much more clear whose side we are on. Everyone would say they are on the side of civil justice. But it’s our job to be on the side of civil litigators!

Those who follow the Section on Twitter may have noticed that we have also changed our handle to @LSCivLit. Please follow us if you don’t already for the latest civil litigation-related news and events from the Law Society.
