The New Practice Direction on Witness Statements: A practical summary and some personal perspective.  

Presented by James Walmsley of Wilberforce Chambers.

James will provide a practical summary and some personal perspectives. This will include:

  • The goals in the New Practice Direction.
  • The concrete changes in the new rules that go beyond a re-iteration of good practice.
  • The perils of non-compliance.
  • What practical impact might the New Practice Direction have on readying a case for trial, and indeed the trial itself?
  • Some predictions of potential wider knock-on impacts.
