Major Oxford Study into Litigation Funding and Costs
Dr Christopher Hodges and Professor Stefan Vogenauer of Oxford University have just published a major international study into litigation funding and costs.
The project has already proven influential in contributing to the Review of Civil Litigation Costs in England and Wales conducted by Lord Justice Jackson earlier this year. The authors go on to recommend that, “If governments wish to deliver wider access to justice in those cases where proportionate cost is particularly important, they should introduce tariffs for lawyers’ fees, introduce efficient case management techniques in the civil courts, and devise alternative pathways for dispute resolution that deliver cheaper or more efficient solutions.”
