I have received notification from the court that my case against

This answer was rated:

I have received notification from the court that my case against my landlord has been changed from a 3 hour trial to a Full Day trial.

Therefore, the court date has been changed.

This is after the judge carefully looked at all the evidence and documentation.

There is a lot too it, covering many areas.

I just got my head round a 3 hour trial and what that might consist of,

Could someone help me understand what to expect from a Full Day trial.

I have some disclosure from the defendant (Not all) but enough to find a communication in it from his barrister 2 years ago saying they needed to avoid going to court due to it becoming a "test case" and precedents being set.

It is important as so many laws and rights have been undermined by this case.

Please help get my head round Full Day trial.

Just me, disabled claimant doing it assisted by disability rights person and mckenzie friend.

Thank you
