A Festschrift for Lord Justice Jackson: “Construction Law, Costs and Contemporary Developments: Drawing the Threads Together”

23rd Nov 2018

Atkin Chambers was delighted to contribute to “Construction Law, Costs and Contemporary Developments: Drawing the Threads Together” – A Festschrift for Lord Justice Jackson edited by Julian Bailey

Lord Justice Jackson’s judicial career saw a remarkable transformation of construction law, construction law litigation and the litigation landscape more generally. Drawing the Threads Together is a Festschrift which considers many of the important developments in these areas during the Jackson era.

The Festschrift discusses most of the leading construction cases decided by Lord Justice Jackson. It also includes a discussion of the background to the Jackson Review of Civil Litigation Costs (2009–2010) and its impact on litigation, as well as considering the development of the Technology and Construction Court during and subsequent to Mr Justice Jackson’s tenure as judge in charge of that court.
