Case management hurdles in representative litigation
This seminar will address recent developments in case management rules and procedures. Class actions are increasingly important as a means of recovering damages. Courts face complex issues in management of these claims. Case management procedures in Federal and State jurisdictions have been harmonised to increase opportunities for Courts to facilitate the settlement process. We will explore the advocate’s role in this process and examine the areas of concern.
