Mitchell Reinterpreted: Court of Appeal’s new guidance handed down today: book now for seminar

July 4, 2014

The Court of Appeal has today handed down its judgment in three conjoined appeals, seeking to give authoritative new guidance on relief from sanctions.

This is a significant and important decision affecting the conduct of civil litigation. What is the guidance, will it work in practice and does it cure the ills brought about by the rewriting of CPR 3.9 and the decision in Mitchell?

David Mohyuddin and Ian Tucker appeared in the Court of Appeal for one of the respondents and will be discussing the decision and its impact on Wednesday 23 July at Exchange Chambers, 201 Deansgate, Manchester and on Thursday 24 July at Exchange Chambers, Oxford House, Oxford Row, Leeds.  The timetable for both events is as follows: 815 am – 845 am Coffee and Registration, 845 am – 945 am Seminar / Discussion.

If you would like to join in the debate, please reply to Jo Stapley indicating your preferred venue. There is no charge for this event at which breakfast will be provided.

We look forward to seeing you at one of these seminars which are very likely to be oversubscribed: early booking is recommended.
