In response to feedback sought from professional associations and users, the Disclosure Working Group proposed a number of significant changes to the Pilot earlier this year. These changes were approved by the Civil Procedure Rule Committee in September 2021 and have received ministerial approval, and came into force on 1 November 2021.  In this session, members of the Disclosure Working Group who were responsible for drafting these modifications will provide an overview of the changes and explain the thinking behind them.
