Notice of Change to Order 59 of the Circuit Court Rules

Dear Members,

Please note that the recently amended Order 59 of the Circuit Court Rules will become effective as of the 14th of June, 2017. We would ask that all members familiarise themselves with the amended rules as they relate to important matters such as the procedure for ruling Divorces/Judicial Separations by consent. Further, important changes have been made to the case progression process as it relates to Dublin in particular.

The Association has arranged for Mrs. Catherine Forde BL to give a paper to explain the changes made to Order 59 of the CCR which will be given at our Annual Conference & AGM in the RDS, Dublin 4 on the 24th of June, 2017. 

Any member wishing to attend said Conference should contact for further details.
