What rules or procedures apply to appeals to the District Court or High Court in respect of civil proceedings?

Appeals in civil proceedings should be governed by the procedures in the District Court Rules or High Court Rules.


The District Court Rules and High Court Rules establish the appeal procedures that apply to civil appeals to those courts. New legislation should use these existing procedures unless there are good reasons to create an entirely new procedure.

Subsequent appeals (that is, those to the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court) should be governed by the respective rules of those courts.
