Updated website (16 May 2014)

The Rules Committee website is being updated to include more information and documents that may be of interest to the legal profession and members of the public.

Part of this update includes establishing a separate tab in the navigation bar for the Criminal Rules Sub-Committee. This separate tab sets out information about the Sub-Committee, including its membership, and the Sub-Committee's minutes are now located there rather than in the general minutes section of the Rules Committee.

The Rules Committee will also upload the agenda for each meeting prior to the meeting and welcomes any comments or feedback in relation to any of the agenda items.
