Net effect of recommendations

The net effect of the recommendations will be that:

  • judicial officers are encouraged and supported in their role as robust case managers;

  • parties and practitioners will have a clearer understanding of what is expected of them in relation to discovery obligations;

  • the scope of discovery will be defined more clearly and in the context of an understanding of how information is stored and can be accessed; and

  • the clarity of expectations and certainty in obligations will help to maintain proportionality in discovery costs.
