Chambers Practice Manual

This update of the Chambers Practice Manual, resulting from collective discussions held at the Judges’ retreat near Arnhem (Netherlands) on 3-4 October 2019 and drawing on the preparatory work undertaken by a number of judges on this issue, adds a number of specific deadlines for rendering diverse types of decisions and judgments.

These guidelines for the timing of key judicial decisions now introduce a coherent, consistent and predictable system of timeframes regulating work at pre-trial, trial and appeal level.

They aim to achieve a significant step forward in respect of the efficiency and expeditiousness of Court proceedings.
