Your free copy of Costs & Funding following the Civil Justice Reforms: Questions & Answers, 6th Edition
Costs & Funding following the Civil Justice Reforms: Questions & Answers is a unique book. Produced in conjunction with Practical Law™, this short and practical book tackles common practitioner questions on the effects of the 2013 Jackson reforms on costs and funding. It sets out to answer questions posed on topics ranging from funding of litigation, case and costs management and proportionality to settlement offers, QOCS and summary assessment. The new edition adds a significant number of new questions and answers; updates the existing questions and answers and revised commentary in light of new and ongoing case law and legislation in the fast-evolving costs and funding landscape post-Jackson.
Each chapter starts with introductory commentary covering relevant legislation, case law and Lord Justice Jackson's Review of Civil Litigation Costs: Final Report followed by the questions and answers, sub-divided under topics.
New coverage for the new edition includes cases such as West v Stockport NHS Foundation Trust  EWCA Civ 1220 (proportionality); Brown v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis  EWCA Civ 1724 and Wickes Building Supplies Ltd v Blair (No.2: Costs)  EWCA Civ 17 (QOCS & Fixed Costs); King v City of London Corporation  EWCA Civ 2266 (Part 36 and also detailed assessment of costs); Herbert v HH Law Ltd  EWCA Civ 527 (solicitor client costs). The new edition also notes the SRA Standards and Regulations 2019 for solicitor/client costs and covers the MoJ's post implementation review of LASPO, proposals for DBA reform and the consultation on extension of fixed costs.
Edited by former Senior Costs Judge Peter Hurst, with contributions from District Judge Simon Middleton and barrister Roger Mallalieu, this is an authoritative and timely book that any practitioner involved with costs cannot afford to be without.

ON YOUR FEET: A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO CIVIL ADVOCACY
On Your Feet: A Practical Guide to Civil Advocacy is a new book that provides broad coverage of the types of hearings commonly encountered by pupil barristers and junior tenants practising in civil law. The aim of the book is to provide practical information, quickly and clearly, about how to approach each type of hearing and the issues that may arise in that hearing. It indicates the key texts, rules and cases to consult, and guides the reader through the process of appearing in that hearing. This includes holding conferences with the client, communicating with the solicitors, and drafting orders.
The authors, all practising junior barristers, have experience of regular court work and are writing from a current, junior perspective, answering the common questions asked by pupils and junior tenants.
The content of the book is divided between General Civil and Personal Injury; Landlord and Tenant; Commercial Chancery; and Employment. The Introductory section covers general practical considerations, whilst the appendix includes examples of orders and attendance notes which have been approved and used in real cases. The book offers cross-references to the White Book and acts as a ‘way in’ for those not overly familiar with it.
Authors: Clare Elliott, Hailsham Chambers; Brooke Lyne, Landmark Chambers; Emma Horner, 4 Stone Buildings; Chloë Bell, Outer Temple Chambers
