Rules & Practice Directives

Court of King’s Bench


The Rules of Court govern the practices and procedures to be followed in matters that are brought before the Court. Compliance with the Rules is mandatory and it is the responsibility of lawyers or persons who represent themselves in court proceedings to know and comply with the rules that may apply to their proceeding.

Failure to comply can result in unnecessary delay and expense. It could also result in a significant disadvantage or loss in a person’s ability to pursue a claim, appeal or defence.

The Rules of Court, published in the Saskatchewan Gazette and on the Publications Saskatchewan website, comprise the following parts:

King’s Bench Rules / Regles de la Cour du Banc du Roi
 – Amendments / Modifications
King’s Bench Forms / Cour du Banc du Roi Formulaires
 – King’s Bench Forms (editable) /
King’s Bench Criminal Proceedings /
Tariff of Costs / Tarif des Depens
