National Trial Backlog Initiative – Discussion Paper

PUBLISHED April 2, 2015

At a meeting convened by Mr Justice Baker on the 15th January 2015 it was agreed, with the authority of the Lord Chief Justice, to develop plans to deal with trial backlogs nationally.
This is a revised version of a discussion paper prepared for an initial meeting to discuss the proposed initiative in London. It is stressed that this remains a discussion paper, although the points below reflect agreement of the London group. It is hoped to update arrangements from time to time. In the meantime the paper is provided to inform discussions as the programme is developed for delivery across the country.
