In his Final Report on Access to Justice, Lord Woolf identified three fundamental objectives for the English multi-party litigation regime. This chapter critically analyses those objectives, focusing primarily on group litigation and Group Litigation Orders (GLOs). Taking each objective in turn, it examines selected procedural mechanisms, tools, and techniques. It reflects on the quality and extent of guidance provided by CPR Part 19 which sets out GLO rules, and finally, it considers key recent and proposed reforms.
