The use of Scott Schedules in technology, engineering and construction litigation
Richard Manly SC (2011) 27 BCL 151
The Scott Schedule has been used as a management tool in complex building and construction disputes before the courts for more than 90 years. They are also popular tools for use in domestic and international arbitrations. The Rules of Court in England and Wales, the States and Territories of Australia, as well as the Federal Court of Australia provide either expressly or in a general way for the delivery of Scott Schedules in appropriate cases. The aims of modern day case management, namely the just, efficient, timely and cost-effective resolution of disputes are all satisfied by the use of Scott Schedules.
