"As Registrar, the most common saying I hear is 'I've never done [a registrar's hearing] before.' The manual puts you in the position of knowing what needs to be done. Essentially, [Practice Before the Registrar] provides a measure of experience in a single volume." – Scott A. Nielsen, Registrar, Supreme Court of BC
