Part 8 proceedings may be used where there is unlikely to be a substantial dispute of fact and is often ideally suited when seeking a declaration on:

  • The construction of a contract or other document
  • A question of law
  • Whether there has been a mistake in entering into a tax scheme (such that it can be unraveled), trust or entering into another form of arrangement
  • Claims arising in connection with the administration of the estate of a deceased person, or the execution of a trust.

The material benefit of Part 8 proceedings is that they can often be resolved without the same lengthy and complicated pleadings found in Part 7 proceedings.

This virtual classroom session course will enable a practitioner to understand whether a Part 8 claim is suitable for a dispute, and all relevant issues relating to the issue of a Part 8 claim including the relevant key cases.
