Declaratory Judgments – a Practical Guide (On Demand)

This On Demand was recorded on 1 December 2022.

Declarations can be an effective tool for creative dispute resolution where clients do not have an obvious cause of action, or where it is desirable to use a more streamlined procedure than a full trial. However, applications for solely declaratory relief under the Declaratory Judgments Act 1908 are relatively infrequent. When the need to seek declaratory relief arises, there are few practical resources available for practitioners to refer to.

This On Demand will offer valuable insights to litigators about this useful remedy, including what a declaration is and why you might seek one, the legal tests for seeking declaratory relief under the Declaratory Judgments Act 1908, and practical guidance on the procedure for seeking a declaratory order, including evidential and interlocutory issues that may arise on such applications.

Who should view?

Civil litigators of all levels.
