English Civil Procedure

 

Proportionality in Case Management under the Civil Procedure Rules 1998: Meaning, Functionality and Improvement

Summary

My research focuses on whether the concept of proportionality, introduced as a case management tool for the reduction of cost and delay in civil litigation, functions sufficiently to meet the aims of its introduction. If it does not, are there any ways in which its application can be improved, and is there any guidance on that application to be distilled from the relevant case law?
