Jackson LJ has been appointed to head a review of civil litigation costs. He will be assisted by members of the judiciary, representatives of the wider legal profession and an economist. The panel is expected to submit its recommendation to the Master of the Rolls by December 2009. It will consider whether procedural changes to the costs system could bring about more proportionate costs, as well as looking at the effect case management procedures have on costs. According to Robert Musgrove, chief executive of the Civil Justice Council, the timing of the review is inevitable as we approach the tenth anniversary of the Woolf Reforms.
