This is the third in a three part series of video blogs in which we discuss the reformed Part 36 of the Civil Procedure Rules, which applies to settlement offers made on or after 6 April 2015.

This video considers areas in which the reformed Part 36 remains defective as a tool to settle certain types of disputes, and the ways in which the draftsmen might have gone further in seeking to improve the overall effectiveness of the regime.  It also draws some general conclusions on the reforms as a whole, and how they will impact litigants’ approach to settlement procedure.
