Front loading means that at the time of filing an originating process, the claimant and defendant respectfully must accompany their process with statement of claim or defence, witness statement on oath, copies of documents to be relied on at the trial, and list of witnesses. Front loading affords the parties at an early stage the opportunity to access the strength and weakness of each other’s case and take appropriate action. It avoids a party being taken by surprise, it also reduces indolence and tardiness on the part of lawyers and litigants as well as save time and cost.
