Offshore: The Woolf at the door
While the Civil Procedure Rules have changed the way that the law is implemented in the UK, Guernsey still relies heavily on the Rules of the Supreme Court. Gordon Dawes explains why
Although the Woolf reforms are now four years old in their jurisdiction of origin, they have no application in Guernsey at all. 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 Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) update column.
