We have been informed by the Courts that applications for postponement were being made on the hearing date when, looking at the reasons, the application could have been made earlier and the Courts could have adjusted the cause list.
The Courts have requested that members apply for postponement early or once the need for postponement comes to notice. This would give the Courts sufficient time to adjust the cause list and avoid the hearing time from becoming vacant. It might also be advisable to inform clients that they should notify lawyers as early as possible upon coming to know that they would not be able to attend Court.
Members are to be advised accordingly.
