Administrative Court Listing Policy (updated June 2021)
This policy replaces the listing policy issued in June 2018.
It provides guidance for officers when listing cases in the Administrative Court. It will be applied by the Administrative Court Office in the Royal Courts of Justice, London (“the London ACO”) and by each of the Administrative Court Offices on circuit (“the circuit ACOs” – i.e. the Administrative Court Offices in Cardiff, Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester). The policy is intended to provide guidance for listing officers.
The policy concerns the listing of all hearings for claims and appeals brought in the Administrative Court, save for extradition appeals (the practice followed when listing hearings in extradition appeals, including expedited appeals is stated in Criminal Practice Direction 50).
