Court of Appeal two-monthly sitting system

The Court of Appeal has proposed to adopt a system of two-monthly sittings. Call-overs for the first of these sittings will be held in November, with the first of the two-monthly sittings in February and March.

Legal representatives for parties in criminal matters will be contacted directly to inform them about the call-over scheduled for 16 November 2017.  The second call-over for parties in civil appeals will be held on 23 November 2017.

At the call-overs the invited legal parties for both the appellant and respondent will have an opportunity to state the time estimate for the hearing, as well as any special features of the matter that may require action on the part of the Court so that the hearing dates may be used efficiently.
