Disclosure: avoiding the pitfalls

22 November 2018

This guide provides you with a general introduction to the obligations of disclosure in Court proceedings. The rules governing disclosure are found in the Civil Procedure Rules Part 31 and the surrounding case law. This guide will highlight the main points you need to know, consider the problems often encountered and offer some practical tips.

The Civil Procedure Rule Committee has approved a new Practice Direction which sets down different rules for a mandatory disclosure pilot scheme to run for two years in the Business and Property Courts (the Chancery Division, the Commercial Court and the Technology and Construction Court) in England and Wales, from 1 Jan 2019. The changes under the pilot are explained in our separate guide, "The Disclosure Pilot Scheme".
