Change still seems to be the order of the day

I took up the professional support role in 1999 - the year in which the English civil procedure rules were completely rewritten - and spent many happy years explaining to senior litigators how much things had changed. Change still seems to be the order of the day, and the challenge of keeping busy litigators up to speed never seems to abate.
