The 2018-2019 legal year in England and Wales ended on Wednesday 31 July 2019.  The civil courts in England and Wales are now on “Summer Vacation” for 2 months until the Michaelmas term begins on 1 October 2019.

The Inforrm blog is now taking a summer break until the end of September. We thank all our readers and contributors who have supported us over the past year. Posting will continue over the summer but will not be as regular as usual. 

We have now had nearly 4.8 million page views in the 9½ years we  have been publishing since February 2010.  There have been over 4,700 posts from dozens of different contributors.
