Urgent Admiralty and Maritime Applications
With all urgent judge-related admiralty and maritime applications, the filing party should contact the chambers of the relevant Admiralty & Maritime Registry Co-ordinating Judge in the Registry where the proceeding is intended to be filed or, in his or her absence, to a judge in the Admiralty & Maritime National Practice Area, in that Registry.
Note: Applications for the arrest of a vessel continue to be made to the Duty (or other nominated) Judicial Registrar unless the filing party specifically seeks that the proceeding be dealt with by a Judge.
The contact details for the chambers of the Admiralty & Maritime Registry Coordinating Judge and Admiralty & Maritime NPA Judges are:
Admiralty & Maritime NPA Registry Coordinating Judge
NSW & ACT
VIC & TAS
If you are unable to contact the Admiralty & Maritime NPA Coordinating Judge or another judge in the NPA, please contact the Principal Judicial Registrar & National Operations Registrar regarding the urgent originating admiralty & maritime application:
