Issued by the authority of the

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 Select Legislative Instrument 2010 No. 274 made on 2 November 2010 and which came into operation on 1 January 2011.

 

The Joint Costs Advisory Committee, in its report dated September 2011, recommended an increase of 3.7% 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 Sunday, 1 January 2012, will apply in respect of all work done and services performed by solicitors after Saturday, 31 December 2011.
