Information on the appeal courts


If you are unhappy with the outcome of your court case, it is possible that you may be able to appeal it. You cannot appeal a decision purely because you dislike the outcome though – you need to have proper legal grounds for appeal. For example, the court may have failed to take into account a certain matter or they may have incorrectly applied a legal principle.

It is generally advisable to get legal advice from a solicitor before making an application to appeal.

In this section we have explained the basics of the appeals process, although you do need to keep in mind that the precise process will vary depending on the type of matter you are appealing and which courts you are appealing from and to. For information on the court hierarchy you can find this under our Types of Court section.
