Free webcast on Jackson Review available

Dominic Regan, Visiting Professor in The City Law School chaired the biggest Webinar in legal history, in conjunction with the New Law Journal (NLJ) earlier this month.

The discussion took place following British Judge Sir Rupert Jackson’s proposals to reduce costs of litigation, and was streamed live on the NLJ website.

Regan, a leading authority on civil procedure and costs, was joined by His Honour Michael Cook; David Greene, NLJ consultant Editor and President of the London Solicitors Litigation Association, Edwin Coe; Bob Musgrove, Chief Executive of the Civil Justice Council; Nick Bevan, Senior Counsel, Bond Pearce and Simon Butler, Ely Place Chambers.

The panellists gave immediate analysis of the Jackson report as well as their predictions of the report’s potential impact on the legal profession.

The webinar was so popular that large numbers of visitors to the site caused it to crash. It can now be viewed online.
