Offshore: The Woolf at the door
The biggest review of the British civil justice system in a century, the Civil Procedure Rules, passed Guernsey by completely. But the jurisdiction could have something to learn from Woolf, says Gordon Davies
Although the Woolf reforms are now four years old in their jurisdiction of origin, they have no application in Guernsey. So, just when Lord Woolf might have thought that the last cheap joke title had seen the light of day, we are likely to be penning them here in the Bailiwick for some considerable time to come; although I do not intend to sink so low as to adopt the memorable “Woolf bites” title of a certain CPR update column.
