TECBAR held its Annual Conference at the Caledonian Club on 8 February 2014. A full programme of excellent speakers included Mr Justice Ramsey, who provided an update on TCC news. This included the news that, following an extensive procurement exercise, a preferred supplier has been identified to deliver a new IT system for the Rolls Building jurisdictions. The objective of the new CE-File project is the delivery of an electronic filing system that allows claimants to submit claims and court papers online, and court staff to manage those papers electronically.
Other talks included an update on professional negligence from David Sears QC, an update on recent adjudication enforcement decisions from Andrew Bartlett QC, and a guide to appellate advocacy from Michael Soole QC.
