CPD Hours: 1


This course provides an in-depth analysis provided by Elissa Da Costa-Waldman on the topic of running an appeal.

This session will look at how to appeal a decision and the limited bases upon which it may be done taking practitioners through the law as to whether the appeal is ‘fanciful’ or has a real prospect of success. The course will look at the procedure to be adopted together with drafting points following on from the decision of Mostyn J in Augousti v Matharu [2023] EWHC 1900 (Fam). The course will also consider previous case law and the FPR which includes rules as to what Advocates can and should do at final hearings to seek clarification of decisions/judgments in order to minimise appeals.

After this course, Practitioners will be able to-

  • Consider what needs to be done at the conclusion of a hearing to avoid/minimise costly appeals
  • properly consider and advise on the degree of likelihood needed to satisfy the criterion of “a real prospect of success” of a proposed appeal?
  • Make a judgment to advise clients on how improbable the success of an appeal has to be to satisfy the criterion that “the proposed appeal is totally without merit”?
  • Understand the procedure to be used for Appeals considered to be meritorious
  • Know and be able to draft the documents required for an appeal
  • Draft succinct Grounds of Appeal
