Customer Question

We are the self represented defendants in a civil case at the Magistrate's Court tomorrow and we would like to ask for an adjournment. We have a copy of the Plaintiffs letter to the Court confirming we were aware of the available ADR process but we were not given this option and offered a Settlement Conference

JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Does - Australian solicitors conduct rules 12.2 apply

Hello
It will be adjourned on that basis alone.

A Magistrate really cannot undertake a hearing until some settlement conference / negotiations have been undertaken.

A Magistrate will also need to be cautious that you are self represented and would allow you to negotiate in any event.

I wish to help you in this situation.
