- Information exchange — Appeals — Hearings — Judicial remedies
This chapter focuses on practice and procedure in hearings conducted in the High Court and in the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT). It first considers the preparation for hearings, taking into account the relevant rules, namely Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) and CAT Rules, as well as case management, location of proceedings, treatment of confidential information, skeleton arguments and their publication, preparation of bundles of documents, and site visits. The discussion then turns to how hearings are conducted, focusing on factors to consider such as the venue, witnesses, time limits, and transcripts. The chapter also examines matters consequent upon hearings, such as handing down and reporting of judgments, along with their publication and costs. Finally, it explains how applications for permission to appeal in the High Court and in the CAT are made.
