Practice Note – Listing Issues Resolution Hearings
Although Leicester has performed impressively within the last year in reducing the average duration of public law cases, and many cases are now concluding within the statutory 26-week time limit, unfortunately court lists and the availability of final hearing dates is hampering this progress.
I have issued a practice note in relation to the listing of the IRH: all parties and the court should aim to list the IRH between week 18-20 wherever possible. Hopefully this will allow for the earlier resolution of cases which need to be timetabled to a final hearing.
The practice note can be downloaded here.
