260 THE ADVOCATE
VOL. 77 PART 2 MARCH 2019
BOOKING MATTERS ON THE ASSIZE LIST
The weeks available for booking applications to the chambers assize will be
posted on the “Scheduling” section of the Court’s website which is available
here. The booking of matters to the assize list will be done by SC Scheduling
in the usual way. At the time of booking, counsel will be required to indicate
whether the matter is within the jurisdiction of a master or must be heard
by a judge. Placing an application on the assize list does not guarantee that
the application will be heard. If the application is not heard, it will not be
treated for scheduling purposes as having been bumped.
It is anticipated that SC Scheduling will be able to confirm the assize list a
day in advance, and counsel and self represented litigants will be contacted
to confirm which matters will proceed for hearing on the following day.
Applications records for matters set on the assize list must be provided to
the chambers registry at VLC, no later than 4 p.m. on the Thursday* before
the assize week, and must be served as required by the Rules of Court.
Chief Justice Hinkson
Provincial Court of British Columbia
* Unless Friday is a statutory holiday in which case the application record must be filed no later than 4 p.m. on the Wednesday
before the assize week.
