1.10 Prepare a book of authorities
If you intend to refer to one or more authorities (e.g. legislation or a previous court decision that is similar to your case) at the hearing of the appeal or application, you must prepare a book of authorities.
You can choose to file your own book of authorities or you can agree with the appellant to file a joint book of authorities.
At least 30 days before the court hearing, you must:
- File the book of authorities. If you file in paper you will need at least 5 copies – 3 for use of the court, one copy for your own use, plus one copy for each respondent if you are not filing a joint book of authorities.
- serve one filed copy of the book of authorities on each appellant (if you are not filing a joint book) and on any other respondents.
