Practice Directions & Circulars

Criminal Practice Directions are issued by the Chief Judge and supplement the procedures set out in the Criminal Procedure Act 2004 (WA) and the Criminal Procedure Rules 2005 (WA). They impose obligations on the parties and their lawyers. Circulars to Practitioners are issued by the Principal Registrar and provide guidance about the practice of the court.
