898 V O L . 7 5 P A R T 6 N O V E M B E R 2 0 1 7 THE ADVOCATE British Columbia Court of Appeal Practice Note (Civil) Re: Booking Civil Chambers Applications Issued: 28 April 2017 Effective Date: 08 May 2017 There is currently no requirement for counsel to communicate with the registry to determine whether a chambers list is full prior to filing a notice of motion returnable on a particular day. However, a chambers list may be closed by the chambers scheduler if too many applications are filed. A practice has evolved where counsel call the registry to confirm the list is still open or, inconveniently to all, file a motion that must be rescheduled to an open list. The Court will therefore start publishing a chambers calendar on the website that will be updated each day shortly after the registry closes at 4:00 p.m., at which time the chambers scheduler will evaluate and close any lists. Accordingly, parties may book and file a motion returnable on any open day in the calendar without a need to call or otherwise communicate with the registry. This practice note does not cover applications that are set by the Associate Registrar (such as an application to vary an order of a justice). T.R. Outerbridge Registrar History • This is a new practice note. t t t t t
