With the recent nomination 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 firstname.lastname@example.org) and to any other party to the appeal by close of business on the preceding Tuesday. It should be noted that there is no Directions List this term on Friday the 8th and 15th November 2019 or on Friday the 13th December 2019.
