Must a copy of a Group Litigation Order be forwarded to the Law Society?

I act for a group of claimants in relation to Multi-Party Action. A Group Litigation Order (GLO) has been granted. My colleague informs me that we need to forward a copy to the Law Society. Is this correct?

Yes. Practice Direction 19B on group litigation, which supplements Section III of the Civil Procedure Rules part 19, states that after a GLO has been made, a copy of the GLO should be supplied to:

  • The Law Society (Practice Advice Service), 113 Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1PL
  • The Senior Master, Queen’s Bench Division, Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, London WC2A 2LL

The Practice Advice Service operates the Law Society’s Multi-Party Action Information Service (MPAIS). For further information, please telephone 020 7320 5675.
