Jason Raeburn Appointed General Editor of the ‘Green Book’

March 21, 2023

Paul Hastings partner Jason Raeburn has been appointed to the prestigious position of General Editor of The Civil Court Practice (the ‘Green Book’), the indispensable authority on jurisdiction and procedure in the civil courts of England and Wales.

The Green Book, published by LexisNexis, is the essential guide to bringing, defending, and appealing civil proceedings in England and Wales, and is an essential source of reference for all practitioners in the High Court and the County Court. It provides focused, authoritative, and comprehensive coverage of the Civil Procedure Rules, complemented by commentary from eminent experts.

“It is an honour and privilege to be appointed as the General Editor of the Green Book. I have always admired the Green Book’s clear aims to serve as a source of reference for members of the judiciary, practitioners and importantly, litigants in person to help them navigate the ‘world’ of civil procedure more effectively,” said Raeburn, partner and head of Paul Hastings’ London intellectual property and technology litigation practice.

“I am committed to helping maintain and further develop the impressive reputation and standing that has been established by my predecessors including most recently, General Editors Peter Thomson KC and Louise di Mambro OBE, to whom I express our collective gratitude and appreciation for their dedication and efforts,” he added.

At Paul Hastings, Jason's practice focuses on intellectual property and complex technology disputes, often relating to trade secrets and copyright in the fields of artificial intelligence and software development. He plans to incorporate his insights and perspectives into the Green Book, with a particular focus on the future of litigation and the ways in which artificial intelligence tools (including natural language processing) will change civil court practice, fundamentally altering the way in which cases are managed and litigated.
