The defendant costs specialists

What has the Association of Costs Lawyers ever done for us?

Last week’s annual ACL Conference saw speakers include:

Lord Justice Jackson

Senior Costs Judge Master Gordon-Saker

Costs Judge Master James

Master McCloud

Regional Costs Judge Besford

Regional Costs Judge Lethem

Regional Costs Judge Lumb

Regional Costs Judge Middleton

Nicholas Bacon QC

Simon Browne QC

PJ Kirby QC

Andrew Post QC

Vikram Sachdeva QC

Dr Mark Friston

Professor Dominic Regan

There are clearly some outsiders who believe the ACL is getting something right.

Two of the Regional Costs Judges present told me they had taken Friday as annual leave so they could attend the conference.  This suggests a number of possible things:

  1. The ACL Annual Conference is THE legal event of the year.
  2. The ACL Annual Conference is THE social event of the year.
  3. Some judges need to get out more. (To be fair, this conference is not so much the highlight of my social calendar, rather the only entry.)
