Lecturer appointed to the Civil Procedure Rule Committee

Masood Ahmed

The Committee is an advisory non-departmental public body sponsored by the Ministry of Justice. The function of the Committee is to make rules of court (the Civil Procedure Rules) governing the practice and procedure in: the civil division of the Court of Appeal; the High Court; and the County Court. The powers of the committee to make rules are exercised with a view to ensuring that the civil justice system is accessible, fair and efficient and that the rules are both simple and simply expressed.

Masood will work with members of the judiciary including the Master of the Rolls and Head of Civil Justice (Lord Dyson); the Deputy Head of Civil Justice (Lord Justice Richards) and leading practitioners in drafting new rules; reviewing and amending existing rules; implementing key reforms (such as the Jackson reforms on civil litigation costs); and considering and advising on proposals for reform from specialist sub-committees.
