General Guidance on pdf bundles

The guidance has been provided by Sir Andrew McFarlane (President of the Family Division) (click here to view guidance) , Lady Justice Thirlwall (Senior Presiding Judge) & Mr Justice Mann (Judge in charge of Live Services) in order to achieve a level of useful consistency in the provision of PDF bundles for use by judges in hearings. In their note (as attached ) it is made clear that it is not immutable, and should give way to any specific directions by particular courts or the requirements of particular judges in particular cases.

Their overriding objective is that , as a guide to the construction of useful bundles this  should provide judges with bundles which are as useful as they can be made. Though comes with words of warning that they are expecting compliance  with all or most of these requirements, and If they cannot there should be explanation as to why.
