5. Communication with the Courts

(1) Lawyers must not, outside an ex parte application or a hearing of which an opponent has had proper notice, have any communication with the Courts, or with a judge of the Courts, concerning any proceedings —
(a) which are, or will be, before the Courts; and
(b) in respect of which the lawyer represents any party or any other interested person.
(2) If, despite paragraph (1), a lawyer has any ex parte communication with the Courts, or with a judge of the Courts, the lawyer must inform every other party to the proceedings of the communication as soon as possible.
