Review of District Court's Commercial List
5/09/2012 12:00:00 AM
The District Court has commenced a project to review the way in which it manages commercial cases. As part of this review, the Court has developed an online survey to review its current commercial list. The survey can be accessed from the homepage of the Court’s website, www districtcourt.wa.gov.au .
The survey is addressed to both practitioners and clients. Legal practitioners are encouraged to invite their commercial clients to complete the survey.
The survey can also be downloaded from the Court’s website and completed in hardcopy. Completed hardcopy surveys may be left at the Registry.
Once all responses have been gathered and analysed, the Court will consider what, if
any, changes it should make to its existing practice and procedure. These changes could include:
The Court will publish a summary of the findings of the survey as well as information as to any major changes proposed.
- Requests for legislative change.
- Rule changes.
- Practice changes, to be reflected in new or amended Practice Directions or Circulars to Practitioners.
- Administrative changes.
- Technology initiatives.
Any specific queries in relation to the project or the survey may be directed to the Principal Registrar.
