The CJC Review of Costs – FOIL considers the final report
- FOIL select
- London FOIL
Whilst the timescale has been short compared with the Fixed Recoverable Costs project, the CJC review has been underway since early 2022, with a initial report published in June 2022, a consultation phase running until October 2022, and a reopening of the consultation at the end of 2022 to call for responses on the decision in Belsner v CAM Legal.
The review has focused on four areas:
• Costs budgeting
• Guideline Hourly Rates
• Costs under Pre-action Protocols/Portals and the digital justice system
• Consequences of the extension of FRC.
