It frequently happens that far more material is lodged in support of the appeal than is either necessary or desirable. For instance, in a case of a multi-handed appeal by a number of Counsel it is not normally necessary to lodge more than one set of instructions etc. Liaison between appellants is important.
Before lodging substantial volumes of papers, it is advisable to contact the Clerk of Appeals who will if necessary liaise with the Costs Judge as to what documents are required.
The relevant documents should be lodged no more than 10 days prior to an oral hearing. In the case of appeals to be dealt with on paper only and without an attendance, all relevant papers should be lodged with the Notice and grounds of appeal.
