Justices of the High Court of Australia

 

 

 

AMENDMENTS TO THE HIGH COURT RULES 2004

 

 

 

Schedule 2 of the High Court Rules 2004 specifies the amount which solicitors, who are entitled to practise in the High Court, may charge and be allowed on taxation of costs by the Taxing Officer of the Court in respect of proceedings in the Court.

 

The amounts in the Schedule were last varied by Statutory Rule No. 223 of 2002 made on 3 September 2002 and which came into operation on 1 October 2002.

 

The Federal Costs Advisory Committee, in its report to the Justices dated 22 September 2004, recommended an increase of 10.2% to the solicitors’ costs as set out in Schedule 2.

 

The Court has agreed to the recommendation of the Committee and the increase, which is to come into operation on Tuesday, 1 March 2005, will apply in respect of all work done and services performed by solicitors after Monday, 28 February 2005.
