Judges Rules in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Peart v The Queen
    • Privy Council
    • 14 February 2006

    (ii) The judicial power is not limited or circumscribed by the Judges' Rules. A court may allow a prisoner's statement to be admitted notwithstanding a breach of the Judges' Rules; conversely, the court may refuse to admit it even if the terms of the Judges' Rules have been followed.

    (iv) The criterion for admission of a statement is fairness. The voluntary nature of the statement is the major factor in determining fairness. If it is not voluntary, it will not be admitted. If it is voluntary, that constitutes a strong reason in favour of admitting it, notwithstanding a breach of the Judges' Rules; but the court may rule that it would be unfair to do so even if the statement was voluntary.

  • Monarch Steamship Company Ltd v Karlshamns Oljefabriker (A/B)
    • House of Lords
    • 09 December 1948

    It was necessary to lay down principles lest juries should be persuaded to do injustice by imposing an undue, or perhaps an inadequate, liability on a defendant. The Court must be careful, however, to see that the principles laid down are never so narrowly interpreted as to prevent a jury, or judge of fact, from doing justice between the parties.

  • R v Osbourne
    • Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
    • 08 December 1972

    The Rules contemplate three stages in the investigations leading up to somebody being brought before a Court for a criminal offence. The first is the gathering of information, and that can be gathered from anybody, including persons in custody provided they have not been charged. At the gathering of information stage no caution of any kind need be administered.

  • Ridehalgh v Horsefield; Watson v Watson (Wasted Costs Orders)
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 26 January 1994

    Judges who are invited to make or contemplate making a wasted costs order must make full allowance for the inability of respondent lawyers to tell the whole story. Where there is room for doubt, the respondent lawyers are entitled to the benefit of it. It is again only when, with all allowances made, a lawyer's conduct of proceedings is quite plainly unjustifiable that it can be appropriate to make a wasted costs order.

  • Izuazu (Article 8 - New Rules) [Upper Tribunal]
    • Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber)
    • 29 January 2013

    We accordingly further endorse the Upper Tribunal's observation in MF that judges called on to make decisions about the application of Article 8 in cases to which the new rules apply, should proceed by first considering whether a claimant is able to benefit under the applicable provisions of the Immigration Rules designed to address Article 8 claims. If he or she does, there will be no need to go on to consider Article 8 generally.
