Significant changes to Part 36 of the Civil Procedure Rules
Civil Procedure Rule Part 36 and Practice Direction 36A specify the procedure to be followed when a party makes an offer to settle a claim, or part of a claim, and the consequences of making such an offer.
From 6 April 2015 this legislation will be updated to reflect case law and to simplify the rules to make them more accessible to court users. This table summarises the changes and provides an overview of issues determined by case law which will also be incorporated into the new legislation.
