Transferring into the Crown Office: A Postscript

Following completion of last quarter's article on this topic (“Transferring Cases Into the Crown Office List” [2000] JR 91), but too late for inclusion in it, Sir Jeffery Bowman's committee published its Review of the Crown Office List. In the article it was argued that, at least pre-CPR, the courts had no power to transfer cases begun by writ onto the Crown Office list (and that it was unclear whether the Woolf reforms had changed this). Furthermore, the potential usefulness of such an ability was doubted. The most difficult cases taking the exclusivity point involve cases out of time for judicial review and so it is difficult to imagine that there will be many that are appropriate for transfer across. The court would have to be prepared to extend time and be convinced that the case could not properly be heard by the ordinary procedure.
