1.11 Put together a book of authorities

If you intend to refer to two or more authorities at the hearing of the appeal or application, you must prepare a book of authorities. Use Form 21 to prepare your book.

At least 30 days before the court hearing, you must:

  • file at least 5 copies of the book of authorities in the registry – 3 for use of the court, one copy for your own use, plus extra copies to serve on every respondent; and
  • serve one filed copy of the book of authorities on each respondent.

You can find more information about books of authorities, including how to file a joint book with the appellant, at Rule 40.
