The Civil Justice Reform has now been effective for more than 8 years and there are many judicial decisions reflecting judicial approaches and attitudes to the implementation of the new rules. The authors have chronicled these developments by reference to the considerable amount of case law on the new rules and practice directions.

- The use of translated documents in proceedings vide case development on High Court Civil Procedure (Use of Language) Rules r 5(5)(a)
