This article by Stephen Hardy (Professor of Law, University of Bolton) canvasses the issues and advocates reform of the present antiquated High Court of England & Wales. In making the case for the modernisation of the existing High Court, this article analyses the current workload of the High Court since 2011 and the need to modernise in pursuit of specialism and
expectations of the harmonisation of Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service landscape. In arriving at a reformist model, this article proposes the disbandment of the pre-existing Divisions and replacing them with specialised Chambers fit for 21st Century.
