In one of the four webinars inclusive in 2015 Civil Litigation Section membership, Maura McIntosh takes you through the new version of CPR Part 36
CPR part 36 contains a set of rules aimed at encouraging parties to settle their disputes. Although part 36 is generally seen as one of the success stories of the Civil Procedure Rules, its provisions are highly technical and have led to a significant amount of case law.
Part 36 is being revised again following a review by the CPR Committee.
The new version of Part 36 will apply to offers made on or after 6 April 2015.
This webinar will guide the practitioner through key areas of change such as:
- time limited offers
- split trials
- very high claimant offers
- improved offers
- late acceptance
- costs budgets
This webinar took place on 28 April 2015, but you can listen again via the link below.
