Our registries are responsible for the Court's administration.
They can provide information on the filing of documents, pre-trial conferences, video links of proceedings, fee payment, and general procedural advice.
The Supreme Court Principal Registry performs a range of administrative functions and services including:
- accepting documents for filing in RedCrest, the Court's electronic filing system
- preparing and circulating Court orders
- maintaining the secure storage of Court files
- issuing subpoenas
- serving legal documents overseas
- providing copies of documents
- providing procedural advice on urgent matters
- collecting court fees
Registry staff cannot give you legal advice. They can help with general information about the Court; its rules, procedures and processes.
If you need advice about commencing, defending or appealing a legal action we have some information on representing yourself.
