Requesting an adjournment of a review

The ADR Registrar has the power to adjourn ‘on the papers’ appeals listed for review.

In Brisbane review days are held on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. For review dates in registries outside of Brisbane, contact the local registrar.

Rules 17 and 18 of Practice Direction 1/2019 (PDF, 252.6 KB) set out how to apply, the information  required and the circumstances when an adjournment may be granted.

Please note:

The cut-off time for receipt of an application is 12pm on the day before it’s listed. If your request is received later than this, it may not be dealt with as the ADR Registrar may be absent from the office, or conducting a without prejudice conference. It is recommended you review the ADR Registrar’s online calendar to see if the ADR Registrar is available to consider your request for an adjournment.

Where possible, include all the information in the body of the email, rather than an attachment.

If your request is granted, the ADR Registrar or List Manager will confirm the adjournment by email.
