Coronavirus update - clerking re-location

17 March 2020

Regrettably due to recent events relating to COVID-19, the Axiom clerking team has had to vacate Parliament House until further notice. Please be assured the clerking team is working remotely as far as possible to do so. However, we would ask for your assistance and patience in allowing us to address any urgent matters first and would request any non-urgent matters are directed by e-mail.  We will respond when time and facilities allow us as far as possible to do so.

In terms of delivery of papers, and given restrictions, it is advisable to ensure electronic papers are arranged. Alternatively if this is not feasible, please contact one of the clerks in the first instance to check the most appropriate means of delivering papers to a specific member. We remain contactable on our direct lines; however where possible e-mail would be preferable. If papers are left unattended at the stable, please contact us with details of the name of the advocate, case and nature of instruction. It is also advisable to request the solicitor dealing e-mails a copy of the letter of instruction. However, given the current position, please be aware particularly as the position changes that counsel may not be able to access any hard copy papers left in Parliament House hence the aforementioned is advisable.

If you have a document that requires signing, please attend Faculty Reception, assuming this remains open, and have the appropriate member paged.

Finally, please check our website for updates regarding the position.
