Legal Diary update schedule

The Legal Diary is updated at 5.00 p.m. daily, Monday to Friday

Reading court lists:

In general, the layout of court lists is as follows;
List number Case (file) number Plaintiff v Defendant : Plaintiff's solicitor \ Defendant's solicitor.
The list number indicates the order of priority for hearing on the court date.

Printing court lists:

When you locate the list you require, you may print a plain copy of the relevant list.

Changes and cancellations:

You may also check the notices in the Terms & Sittings section of the website for any changes of court venues or of scheduled sitting dates.


A 'callover' is a sitting at which pending cases are called over in court to determine if they are ready to proceed. Cases which are ready to proceed are assigned dates - insofar as dates are available. Callover lists are identified by a subtitle 'callover'.


Court lists which have been published some weeks in advance of a sitting date are often subject to change nearer to that sitting date. In such cases, the published list will be amended closer to the sitting date. The date of updating will be given at the top of the list.

Therefore, it is important that you check the court list again nearer to the court date.

District Court lists are available from the relevant District Court Office.
