Consultation on Expenses and Funding of Civil Litigation Bill



203. The responses to this consultation will help inform and shape the proposed legislation. As already outlined, the Scottish Government's policy purpose of this legislation is widening access to justice, advancing law reform, and transforming civil and administrative justice. We wish to support a justice system in which anyone with a genuine claim has the opportunity to vindicate their rights and where the cost of litigation is not a barrier which prevents the system from working.

204. We value your opinions and welcome your views on the proposed changes that we have identified in this consultation document.
