Notice to Practitioners: Range of hearing dates
15 November 2004
Practitioners are reminded that it is important that the courts resources are efficiently utilised and for this purpose a range of available dates is maintained by the Registry. The court expects parties to organise their matter including expert evidence, which may include the evidence of an expert appointed by the court so that it can be fixed for hearing within the available range. Only in exceptional circumstances will a matter be fixed for hearing outside the range.
