21 Section two

21 Section two Performance Report: Jurisdiction and casework Appeals Once permission to appeal has been granted, a hearing date is fixed using the time estimate provided by the parties, and the views of the panel considering the application. Hearings last for an average of two days. Between 1 April 2015 and 31 March 2016: • 92 appeals were heard, and • 81 judgments were given. Hearings The Court’s aim remains for all appeals to be heard within nine months of the grant of permission. The Court, however, seeks to arrange hearings according to the availability of parties’ legal representatives. In practice it is this factor alone which can prolong the ‘life’ of an appeal as instructing new advocates if their advocate of choice is not available within the target period involves the parties in considerable extra expense. The UKSC can and has arranged hearings within weeks of the grant of permission in a number of urgent cases (for example, family cases). The Court deliberately allows some gaps in its listing to enable such cases to be heard. The following table indicates urgent cases determined by the UKSC during the year, and the timescales within which they were handled.
