Listings (Civil/Crime) email address​

Use this email only for the following:

      1. Mediation listing requests (where Order for mediation made) / determine available mediation dates.
      2. Examination available dates / listing requests.
      3. Applications for matters to be restored where liberty to apply has been granted (in the most recent order made). Note if the purpose of the relisting is in respect of non-compliance of orders made then an affidavit setting out the details of the default and steps taken to remedy the breach, what proposed orders are being sought is to accompany the listing request.
      4. For matters in the Admiralty, Commercial, Commercial Arbitration, Corporations, Defamation, Family Provision, Real Property, Revenue or Technology and Constructions Lists - any request to restore or relist matter is to be directed to the Chambers (via Associate) of the List Judge. Additionally, where a Judge has specifically indicated that such approach should be made directly to that Judge via their Associate, then an email to civil listings is incorrect and again should be directed to that Judge via Chambers.
      5. Common Law - available hearing dates where leave has been given to approach and list the matter for a hearing. The listing will only be confirmed once all parties have given their consent that the date is suitable.
      6. Enquiries relating to Supreme Court Criminal proceedings.
      7. Requests to appear via AVL in the Common Law and Equity Registrar directions list are to be emailed by 12pm working day prior to the listing. For transparency purposes, all parties are to be included in your correspondence when requesting to appear via AVL. "Application for appearance via AVL – Registrar ONLY" form can be located here
        Note: The Listing email address is unable to assist with requests to appear via AVL before the Registrar in Court of Appeal, Court of Criminal Appeal, Bails or Return of Subpoenas.  Any requests of this nature are to be directed to the relevant email address located on the "Contact Us" page.
