CROWN OFFICE LIST
There should be lodged in the Crown Office, preferably at least two weeks before the date fixed for hearing, but in any event at least one clear working day, a document containing:
(a) a list of issues;
(b) a list of propositions of law to be advanced, together with the authorities relied on in support of each, with page references to passages relied on;
(c) a chronology of events with reference to a properly paginated and indexed bundle of documents;
(d) a list of dramatis personae, where the number of people who feature in the documents warrants it.
The production of such a document does NOT remove the obligation to furnish the Usher with a list of authorities before the morning of the day fixed for hearing.
All cases set down by the end of a term (and, in the summer, during the Long Vacation) come into the Jury Warned List for the following term.
All cases in the Jury Warned List are likely to be heard during the term for which they are warned and parties must be ready for trial at any time.
Where a date is required for the convenience of doctors and/or experts in a Non-Jury case, solicitors should be prepared at the hearing of the application to fix a date, to give the Clerk of the Lists full details of the dates on which the doctors and/or experts are able to attend court.
Barrister’s Clerks are requested to see that the Associate is informed of all names of Counsel appearing in each case at least 15 minutes before Courts sit.
The list of cases for hearing the following day is finally settled at about 2p.m. in Rooms WG08 and subject to fixtures and dated cases is selected from the Current Warned List.
All reasonable efforts are always are made to meet the convenience of the parties and their Counsel and Solicitors and the present practice of "offers" will continue. However, whatever may have happened in the past, parties and their legal representatives should now clearly understand that when a case appears in the Warned List, it is almost certain that it will be tried during the week following publication. Excuses that the action is not ready for trial will not be accepted by the Clerk of the Lists. An application to the Judge in charge of the List will be required if it is desired to postpone trial in cases which are in the Warned List. Appropriate orders as to costs will be made in such cases. Affidavits or other papers in support of or opposition to an application must be lodged with the Clerk of the Lists not later than 2.30p.m. on the day before the application is made. Failure to do so will result in the application being placed at the bottom of the list or deferred to be dealt with at a later time or date.
An appropriate order for costs may be made to deal with such a failure.
It is the duty of all parties to an action entered in any list to inform the Clerk of the Lists without delay of any change of circumstances affecting the length of trial, or of any settlement or likely settlement - and if the action is settled, to take such steps as may be necessary to withdraw the record (Order 34 rule 8 (2) and (3).
Verbal messages to the effect that a case has been settled on the estimate of the length of trial changed should be confirmed in writing to the Clerk of the Lists without delay.
The waiting time from setting down to hearing date of cases in the Non-Jury General List is at present approximately 8 weeks. Parties should therefore expect their cases to appear in the Warned List at or about the end of the period stated and to be then forthwith listed for hearing.
