LEGAL COSTS IN JURISDICTIONS OUTSIDE ENGLAND AND WALES

By following the links below you might find out that there really are legal costs issues outside England and Wales! If only for interest purposes some inspiration may be gained by looking at the comparisons. Interestingly you will see that items such as the ‘Seven Pillars of Wisdom’ still exist almost exactly duplicated in such countries as Singapore, Scotland and Canada.

 

The Civil Justice Council have published a paper titled ‘Improved Access to Justice - Funding Options & Proportionate Costs’. It includes a useful comparison of the costs regimes of other jurisdictions including South Africa, Canada, Japan, France, Sweden and Germany amongst several others. Go to the CJC costs debate site to view the full report.
