The Admiralty and Commercial Courts Guide is being amended with effect from Monday 21 March 2016. The changes fall into three parts. The bulk of the changes reflect the incorporation into the Guide of various guidance from Judges in charge of the list over the last few years. This should obviate the need for reference back to these individual pieces of guidance. There are also some changes suggested by users to deal with issues which have arisen in practice. Finally there are a number of changes to the Case Management Information Sheet, including as to the provision for statistical information, applications regarding the Shorter/Flexible Trials Schemes and timing as to consideration of disclosure schedules and costs management issues.
