Revised Civil Electronic Document Protocol released

13 April 2016

A revised Civil Electronic Document Protocol has been issued for the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court to replace the protocol issued in December 2015.

The purpose of the protocol is to encourage and facilitate the use of electronic documents for civil cases in the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.

The revision better describes the term 'casebook' and how the protocol is to be used for High Court trials.

 It gives greater guidance about how to name and place materials within the electronic format. Naming conventions for descriptions including dates have changed.

The Protocol is available on the Courts of New Zealand website, here.
