Dr John Sorabji appointed to the Civil Justice Council

Chambers would like to congratulate Dr John Sorabji who has been appointment to the Civil Justice Council for a three year period from 1 August 2022 to 31 July 2025 by The Lord Chancellor.

The Civil Justice Council is an Advisory Public Body which was established under the Civil Procedure Act 1997 with responsibility for overseeing and co-ordinating the modernisation of the civil justice system.

The CJC meets at least four times a year to discuss and agree formal responses to consultation papers. The CJS provides advice to the Lord Chancellor, the Judiciary and Civil Procedure Rule Committee on the effectiveness of aspects of the civil justice system, and make recommendations to test, review or conduct research into specific areas.

Dr John Sorabji comments below...

"The civil justice system is an essential part of good government. The CJC plays an important role in ensuring that it is - and remains - effective and accessible to all; that it remains a part of good government. Over the next three years, as the justice system continues to grapple with issues such as court digitisation and litigation funding, I hope to play a full role in helping the CJC improve how we deliver civil justice."
