Contacting High Court Judges
Judges are impartial in the conduct of their functions, which are administered in public. They do not enter into correspondence with parties or anyone else regarding cases before the courts. It is not appropriate to write to them or to speak to them privately.
The only means of addressing a judge about an issue in a case is in open court at a hearing by the legal representative of a party or the party themselves (where self-represented).
Urgent matters on non-sitting days
During the court vacations and at weekends and public holidays the High Court does not generally schedule sittings.
If you have an urgent matter on days when the court is not sitting, you should contact the Four Courts on (01) 8886000 on working days and the Security Desk of the Four Courts on (01) 888 6260 at weekends or public holidays. You will be referred to the Duty Registrar who will make arrangements to communicate with a Judge and liaise with you for urgent applications, if appropriate.
