Following his recent appointment as judge in charge of the new Queen’s Bench “Media and Communications List”, Mr Justice Warby is consulting practitioners and other court users in the media and communications field on a small number of procedural questions.
These questions include enquiring whether practitioners would find it helpful to form a Court Users’ Committee or hold a Court Users meeting.
For the consultation questions and response form see link below. Responses should be sent by email, using the subject line Media List Consultation, to Emma.Lownsborough@hmcts.gsi.gov.uk.
The closing date is 31 May 2017. The intention is to publish the results of the consultation and to consider whether any action is required in the light of the responses and any other relevant considerations.
If any changes to the Civil Procedure Rules or Practice Directions are proposed, it will be for the Civil Procedure Rule Committee to consider whether, and if so how, they are to be taken forward.
