What does the Court of Appeal do?

October 25, 2023 admin

The Court of Appeal hears a wide range of civil appeals following claims in either the County Court or the High Court.

In an appeal, the Court of Appeal will correct any errors or oversights made by a judge in a trial from a lesser court. Such errors can either be errors of fact or errors in law.

The purpose of the Court of Appeal is to allow a ‘wronged’ party to have the decision of the trial judge reviewed by a fresh, and more senior, set of eyes.

Our note on the County Court is available here and on the High Court is here.
