The Practice Note explains the process at the second direction hearing. In preparation for the second directions hearing, the parties need to take certain steps, as follows.
|BOTH PARTIES||Discuss and agree on directions
The parties are to discuss and agree upon the directions the Court should make at the second directions hearing. These directions should be based on the usual directions at second directions hearing in Schedule B to the Practice Note. If the parties do not agree, each party should prepare their own version of the directions they propose. Each party should find out the available dates of themselves and their witnesses, including experts, for a hearing (paragraph 23 of the Practice Note).
Discuss and agree on estimate of hearing time
Realistic estimates of the hearing time enable the Court to fix sufficient time for the hearing and to make directions for the conduct of the hearing (paragraph 24 of the Practice Note).
