Local Court of NSW - standard email for appearance during COVID-19 Lockdown


The Chief Magistrate has approved a standard email for appearances during the current COVID-19 Lockdown, pursuant to Chief Magistrate's Memorandum 19.

The Chief Magistrate's Office have advised that it would also greatly assist the Court if practitioners could contain their emails to 1-2 paragraphs.

To assist the Court to manage the large volume of emails, the Court has also advised that, where practitioners fail to provide the email to the Registry by 3.00pm the day prior to listing, the matter will be marked as no appearance and dealt with accordingly.

The standard email for appearances can be found here.
