John Hyde made this Freedom of Information request to Judicial Office for England and Wales

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Judicial Office for England and Wales,

Can you please confirm the following?

Up to 1 April 2013 (the date at which the Jackson reforms come into force), how much training, in days and hours, will have been given this year to the following grades of judges on costs budgeting:

i) All salaried civil judges
ii) Senior judiciary
iii) Deputy District Judges
iv) Other fee-paid civil judges

What exactly did the training to salaried civil judges consist of? How many hours were dedicated to training on training days and how long was taken up by breaks? Are you able to attach a copy of the training schedule?

Where has the training taken place and what proportion of judges that were supposed to attend have been absent on training days?

What has been the estimated cost of training for costs budgeting up to 1 April?

Are there any plans for extra training after 1 April?

Have there been any formal submissions or correspondence from the Judicial Office to the Ministry of Justice about training ahead of the new rules on costs budgeting coming into force on 1 April?

Have there been any submissions that the level of training is not adequate and have there been any requests for more training?

What responses have been given by the Ministry of Justice to such correspondence?

Yours faithfully,

John Hyde

Evans, Brian (DJO-JSB),
