New Protocol for Hearing of Civil Bills

Members will be aware that Belfast County Court has commenced a pilot to listing civil bills for hearing from the 3rd August 2020.   The Judge will indicate if a case can be listed for hearing following an administrative review. All hearings will be conducted by livelink. 

Within three days of receipt of a listing notification representatives must  complete Form CIV1 and email to the court office with full details of all those who will be participating. Additional Directions may issue following lodgement of the CIV1.

Please access the full protocol issued by His Honour Judge McFarland via this link:  https://judiciaryni.uk/sites/judiciary/files/media-files/Protocol%20for%20the%20Hearing%20of%20Civil%20Bills%20commencing%203%20August%202020%20%28issued%20090720%29.pdf
