How to Prepare an Appeal Bundle
for the Court of Appeal
This leaf‌let explains what you need to do in order to comply with Part 52 of the
Civil Procedure Rules and the Practice Direction which supplements that Part.
Why must I prepare an appeal bundle?
To help the Judge to understand what your case is about. You must put your documents
together in a standard way so that the judge can f‌ind what he needs quickly and easily.
What do I have to do?
If you are applying for permission to appeal, you will have to provide a core bundle within
14 days of f‌iling your appellant’s notice. It is very important that you keep one copy of the
core bundle for your own use.
If permission is not required or if permission has been granted you will need to provide
further copies for the Court and the respondent(s). You will be provided with further
information in this case. Each bundle must be exactly the same so that everyone in court is
looking at identical bundles.
As soon as you have decided you want to appeal, you must immediately take steps to
obtain the judgment of the decision you are appealing. (See page 3, How do I get a copy of
the judgement? and page 4, How do I order transcripts?)
How do I prepare a core bundle for permission to appeal?
The following rules must be followed in every case. These rules and requirements are
important. If your bundle does not comply with them, it will delay the progress of your
case and may lead to your appellant’s notice being dismissed for failure to comply.
The Civil Appeals Off‌ice will send you a core bundle index similar to the one at Annex 2 at
the end of this leaf‌let. The index lists all the documents you must include in your bundle
for permission to appeal. Core bundle indices for all types of cases can be found on the
Civil Appeals Off‌ice website at http://hmctsformf‌inder.justice.gov.uk/HMCTS/GetForms.
