Appeals to the High Court of Australia – Seeking leave
Appeals from the Court of Appeal to the High Court work in a similar way to appeals from the Supreme Court to the Court of Appeal in the sense that you must seek leave to appeal.
The High Court is the highest Court in Australia. Appeals to this Court are complex, technical and should always involve very experienced counsel.
It is very difficult to successfully appeal to the High Court of Australia but every case should be considered, dependent on its facts. Some cases need to be appealed in order to rectify a bad area of law.
Appeal matters, particularly those from the higher Courts, are extremely complicated. As members of the Victoria Legal Aid Indictable Crime Panel, we often take matters to appeal. Due to the complex nature of any appeal it is important to see a lawyer with experience.
This is not an area of law where you should instruct just any solicitor. Dribbin & Brown has handled numerous appeals. If you feel aggrieved by a decision in relation to your matter, talk to one of our lawyers today about the merits of taking your matter on appeal.
