Product description

Annotated High Court Rules is designed to provide the busy practitioner with a single-volume guide to bringing a civil case in the High Court. It contains all the High Court Rules and associated commentary, taken from the authoritative online service Sim’s Court Practice.

The fourth edition of what was previously titled New Zealand Procedure Manual: High Court, includes the Rules requiring the headings of Court documents to include the name of the registry in te reo Māori, changes stemming from the entry into force of the Interest on Money Claims Act 2016, updated references regarding the change from the Judicature Act 1908 to the Senior Courts Act 2016, and updates on the Senior Courts (Access to Court Documents) Rules 2017 which replace the High Court Rules 2016 Part 3 subpart 2 (revoked).

Other amendments include the continued focus on case management, the 2016 Practice Note, which promotes the use of electronic common bundles and casebooks, and the Judicial Review Procedure Act 2016 replacing the Judicature Amendment Act 1972, where as well as substantive matters, it sets out procedures for judicial review proceedings either incorporating, or complementary to, those for ordinary civil proceedings in the High Court.

This commentary will be of value to practitioners as a practical and portable guide to the complex area of High Court civil procedure.


• Contains up-to-date material on High Court Rules, accompanied by the associated commentary.
