Reports on research into the extent to which eight county courts have succeeded in using case management to fulfil the goals of the 1999 civil justice reforms. Reviews the main findings on whether the modifications have brought about a change in litigation culture, the practical application of the case management process, the use of experts, the role of case management conferences and the number of cases in which settlement occurs, including the impact of CPR Part 36. Discusses concerns relating to resources, court administration and the effect of the reforms on costs.
