The Law Council of Australia has just released a handbook for case and hearing management in the Federal Court of Australia. The handbook is 79 pages and draws on the experience of the Law Council of Australia, senior practitioners and the judiciary to provide a user friendly guide to running cases in the Federal Jurisdiction.
A link to the media release and the handbook is here.
The foreword is authored by the Honourable Chief Justice Keane, and it reads as follows:
This Handbook is a very important development in the ongoing dialogue between the Federal Court of Australia and the legal profession who practise before it about how best to manage the cases which are commenced in the Court.
The Federal Litigation Section of the Law Council of Australia and the members of that Section who gave so generously of their time to author the individual chapters which make up the Handbook are to be congratulated.
It is a first class product and contains a wealth of information, guidance, ideas and suggestion about the tools and techniques available for use in the Court. It garners the experience of judges and practitioners alike and provides a valuable insight to case management in litigation in the Federal Court.
I commend the Handbook to all practitioners and encourage them to make full use of this outstanding resource.
I suggest my readers download a copy and review it, as the handbook really is a great practical resource for any sort of litigation, particularly in the Federal Court of Australia.
