In particular, the area of civil procedure is attracting a great deal of interest, especially in the light of Lord Justice Jackson's reforms and its impact upon civil justice generally, including the area of ADR.

This stream also considers alternatives to litigation, in particular domestic and international arbitration.

Areas of interest for this stream would include (but are not limited to):

-All aspects of the Civil Procedure Rules

-All aspects of the Civil Justice System

-The Jackson Reforms on costs

-Alternative Dispute Resolution methods (mediation, negotiation etc)


If you are unsure as to whether your paper fits within this stream then please do not hesitate to contact the convenor.
