Synopsis

This seminar will examine the twists and turns a case can take in its final stages when a case is disposed of.

It will provide guidance on how to prepare your client for what will – or could still be – in store and will help attendees manage the important issues which can arise in an efficient, practical way in accordance with the High Court or District Court Rules.  

Learning outcomes:

You will learn about:

  • The different forms of judgment and the steps which may be taken in respect of a judgment –  including sealing, notification, recall, setting aside, variation, satisfaction, and enforcement. 
  • Managing your client’s expectations before and after the receipt of a judgment.
  • The implications of partial success.
  • The effect of non-compliance with orders in a judgment. 
  • Claims for interest and the basis for them.
