The appellant obtains leave (permission) from the Court of Appeal to lodge his/her case to Her Majesty in Council (the Privy Council), if leave is required. Leave (permission) is required in cases involving matrimonial disputes or matters that have been decided by one judge at the Court of Appeal, among others.
After leave has been granted (if it was required), the case is lodged from the Court of Appeal with the Privy Council through the Registrar of the High Court. Cases that do not require leave must also be lodged through the Registrar of the High Court.
(N. B. – a case cannot be carried straight from the High Court to the Privy Council, it must follow the proper channel, which is, from the High Court to the Court of Appeal, then on to the Privy Council.)
The Privy Council would then issue a date to the Appellant when the case would be heard.
