Extended court hours pilot to commence in February 2018

Although concern about these proposals has largely focussed on criminal cases, the pilot will include civil matters at two of the pilot courts. At Brentford, some sessions will start at 8.00am, whilst others will continue until 8.00pm. At Manchester, a similar scheme will operate, but with a wider range of hearings included in the pilot. The pilot will operate from February 2018 until August, with the evaluation being published in October. Nagalro would welcome feedback on the operation of these pilots from practitioners in those areas.
