Written submissions

The practice direction in relation to submissions, a transcript index, a document index and books of authorities is not being complied with in many cases. In particular a transcript index and a document index is frequently omitted in cases where it is specifically required by the terms of the practice direction and the book of authorities is frequently not lodged until very shortly before the hearing begins.

Practitioners are requested to have particular regard to these requirements in order to assist in the work of the court and in making maximum use of court time.

Copies of the practice direction will be issued by the Supreme Court Office with a certificate of readiness. Further copies of the practice direction may be obtained from the Supreme Court Office on request.

Chief Justice.
