In 2015 the PLA surveyed its members on their experience of using the County Court. The results supported anecdotal evidence about how bad court administration had become, with 88% considering that it was not fit for purpose and 91% saying clients had expressed concerns about litigating in the County Court at all. Five years later, the PLA has repeated the survey and published a new report to see what, if any, improvements have been made. Sadly, matters appear to have gone into reverse, with 93% now saying the County Court falls below a workable standard.
