Dear Subscriber,

Please note that the MOJ have issued a survey relating to LASPO – this is Part 2 – with a focus on Litigation Funding and Costs:

The survey can be found HERE

The MOJ have issued the following information with the survey:

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) is undertaking a post-implementation review of Part 2 of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (LASPO). This relates to the reforms to civil litigation funding and costs in Part 2 of the LASPO Act taking forward Sir Rupert Jackson’s recommendations. As part of this, we are seeking evidence on the impacts of the statutory reforms in Part 2. The MoJ welcomes your feedback and intends to publish the PIR by the end of this year. We ask that you provide evidence and substantiated views, rather than generic views about impact. This survey will remain open until 24 August 2018.

If it is helpful you can refer to the MoJ initial assessment of the reforms before submitting your response. For more details about the reforms themselves, please see the initial policy document on the post-implementation review of LASPO Part 2

The website link for this can be found HERE 

In answering the questions please let us know what kind of sources you are drawing from, e.g. your management information, your first-hand experiences as a practitioner, speaking to colleagues etc.

If you have further data or evidence you wish to provide separately please email to discuss this with the review team.

Please note this is not the LASPO Part 1 (Legal Aid) review, which is being undertaken separately.
