Court Of Appeal (Civil) - Notice of Additional Sittings
With the assignment of new judges to the Court of Appeal additional time has now become available in 2020 for the hearing of appeals. Therefore parties in cases who have been allocated hearing dates in 2021 and who are interested in being allocated a hearing date in 2020 may apply to the judge taking the Directions List on any Friday, in term, for the allocation of an earlier hearing date. Notice of any such intended application must be given to the Registrar (via email to email@example.com) and to any other party to the appeal by close of business on the preceding Tuesday. There is no Directions List on the 13th December 2019, the 14th February or the 20th March 2020. If the available dates in 2020 are not fully allocated as a result of this facility, it may be that there will be a Callover of appeals listed for hearing in 2021 for the allocation of 2020 dates.
