THE DISTRICT COURT OF
WESTERN AUSTRALIA
CONSOLIDATED PRACTICE DIRECTIONS &
CIRCULARS TO PRACTITIONERS
CIVIL JURISDICTION
2019
As updated on 11 March 2021

PREFACE
Civil Practice Directions are issued by the Chief Judge and supplement the procedures set out in the Rules of Court. They impose obligations on the parties and their lawyers. Circulars to Practitioners are issued by the Principal Registrar and provide guidance about the practice of the Court. Over the years, the District Court has issued a number of Practice Directions and Circulars to Practitioners applicable to the civil jurisdiction of the Court. In 2016, the District Court resolved to produce a consolidated document of all practice directions and circulars to practitioners applicable to civil matters before the Court. Current directions and circulars are now contained in this document and those that are no longer relevant have been removed. New directions and circulars and any amendments to current directions and circulars will be added to this document as they are issued during the year; as well as being posted on the Court's website. With the publication of this document, all former practice directions and circulars applicable to civil court matters are revoked.
His Honour Kevin Sleight Chief Judge of the District Court of Western Australia
Mr Shane Melville Principal Registrar of the District Court of Western Australia
PLEASE NOTE This Consolidated Practice Directions & Circulars to Practitioners Civil Jurisdiction excludes
