Speech by Sir Geoffrey Vos, Chancellor of the High Court: Launch of the Business and Property Courts in Bristol – Courts and Tribunals Judiciary

Posted January 15th, 2018 in courts, judges, speeches by tracey

‘First, as we leave the European Union, it is incredibly important that judges and lawyers alike can demonstrate that English law and the courts of England & Wales will continue to offer world class dispute resolution services. We cannot achieve this if we continue to use unintelligible and incomprehensible names and titles. As I said in London at the first of the 5 launches that have already taken place, we need to reach out to the users of these courts and to national and international business generally, so as to ensure that they understand what we are offering in terms of business and commercial litigation here in England and Wales. We need to make sure that these business users can easily understand the services we offer.’
