CHANGES TO PRACTICE DIRECTIONS GOVERNING APPEALS TO THE SUPREME COURT

Mediatelegal

Appealing to the Supreme Court is likely to an extremely rare event for most practitioners. The Supreme Court has its own specific rules.

“The Supreme Court has its own Directions which replace the Civil, Criminal and Taxation Practice directions and standing orders of the Appellate Committee Practice of the House of Lords.”

There are revised Practice Directions dealing with appeals which came into force on the 1st November 2013.

Details of the revisions can be found at http://www.supremecourt.gov.uk/news/revised-practice-directions-november-2013.html

All the relevant Practice Directions can be found at http://www.supremecourt.gov.uk/procedures/practice-directions.html
