The Government's two consultations on the implementation of Jackson's Review of Civil Litigation Costs and the reform of legal aid are due to close on 14 February.
Key recommendations from Jackson included a ban on personal injury referral fees, the introduction of one-way cost shifting and making conditional fee arrangements (CFAs), including success fees, irrecoverable.
The Government gave its backing to a majority of the proposals but said it was awaiting a final report from the Legal Service
