Disclosure Obligations in Civil Litigation - The Requirements Explored
One of the most important aspects to litigation is disclosure.
This phase of Court proceedings is crucial and requires the parties (who may be multiple in number) to comply with CPR Part 31. There is paperwork to complete, to file and to receive and review.
In addition, the parties should use the disclosure period to assess their own cases as well as to analyse their opponents. It is a crossroads: options open up or close, depending on strengths and weaknesses of the evidence you can gather, and the investigations you can make.
This webinar focusses on the legal requirements for disclosure and will leave you knowing what you have to do, when, and why. In addition, it also delves into the practical side of disclosure, and how this phase can make or break a case. The webinar will end with insights from the latest developments and a summary of key takeaways for practitioners.
Please note the webinar will not cover the Disclosure Pilot Scheme in the Business & Property Courts.
