3.3 Court taker

The court registry office staff member taking court is commonly known as the court taker and assists the judge to run the court and ensures the court lists and press sheets are available.

While the court is sitting, the court taker’s priority is to assist the judge.

The court taker is referred to as 'Mr/Madam Registrar' while court is in session.

Please refer any media enquiries concerning the in-court process on the day to the in-court taker. If there is no court in process, the media enquiries should be referred to the registry.
