WHICH COURT RULES COVER APPEALS?

Part 52 of the Civil Practice Rules, together with Practice Direction 52, deals with Appeals. All Parties to an Appeal must comply with the Practice Direction.

An Appeal will only be allowed, at the permission stage where the Court considers that the Appeal would have a “real prospect of success” or “there is some other compelling reason why the Appeal should be heard.”

Any Application to vary time must be made to the Appeal Court

An Appeal Notice may not be amended without the permission of the Appeal Court.

The fact that a Part 36 Offer or Payment into Court has been made must not be disclosed to the Appeal Court Judge(s) until all questions other than costs have been decided on the Appeal.

If it is a second Appeal, the court of Appeal will not give permission unless it considers that the Appeal would raise an important point of principle or practice or there is some other compelling reason for the Court of Appeal to hear it.
