[Webinar] Perspectives from the Bench – To Appeal Or Not To Appeal

19 October 2021, 5.00pm-6.30pm


"If you’re gonna play the game, you're gonna learn to play it right, You’ve got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em, Know when to walk away.  And know when to run ....

A rare opportunity to hear first-hand from our Appellate Judges on the workings of the appellate courts, how they handle the appeal process, and how they prepare for their hearings. Unravel the mystery of what they want for their appeal hearings, and on the pitfalls to avoid. What the parameters are for professional conduct or misconduct. How to reverse a finding of fact by the trial Judge. How to make new law and persuade the Court of Appeal to depart from a previous ruling. How to distinguish difficult cases. The working of Procedural provisions such as Order 57 rule 9A (5). Why Zoom hearings are different. When five Judges will be empanelled. How the cases are filtered between the Court of Appeal and the Appellate Division of the High Court.

An even rarer opportunity to ask your burning questions such as: the importance of the formatting/ colouring, whether specific issues will be raised to counsel beforehand to be prepared/ to be addressed, hard or soft copies, time allocation, role of JLC, how many case authorities to tender, costs estimates, etc.

A must-attend for all litigation practitioners.
