Lord Justice Jackson is one of five High Court judges appointed to hear appeals arising from his costs reforms.

Master of the rolls Lord Dyson announced today the members of a court of appeal designated for hearing appeals arising from the Jackson reforms that came into force in April.

Dyson himself is included, as are Lord Justice Stephen Richards (deputy head of civil justice) and Lord Justices Jackson, Davis and Lewison.

At least one of the designated group will be on the bench for all appeals arising from the reforms.

The announcement has the effect of implementing recommendation 87 of the final report of the Review of Civil Litigation Costs, which said the master of the rolls should designate Lord Justices to consider issues concerning the interpretation or application of the Civil Procedure Rules arising from the reforms.

The report had recommended two Lord Justices be appointed, but five were designated to allow for flexibility of listing.
