The first practical guide to the procedural reforms due to be implemented in April 2013, this essential text explains the wide-ranging recommendations made by Sir Rupert Jackson in his Review of Civil Litigation Costs (MoJ, 2009) dealing with the costs of civil litigation. These changes have been described by Law Society president Lucy Scott-Moncrieff as representing 'the most significant change to the civil justice system since the Woolf reforms in 1999'.

It includes useful tables detailing the changes for ease of access and well as selected appendices with the relevant material practitioners willneed to refer to.
