Court procedure information


Going to court for the first time can be a daunting experience. If you have a solicitor representing you some of the pressure can be taken off. However, this is not always possible or feasible. With a little preparation you can improve your experience at court and possibly the outcome of your case.

Accordingly, we have set out some basic information you should know about going to court, including the basics on the court system and court procedure.

  • Understanding a court summons
  • Understanding the court system
  • Understanding judgments and court orders
  • Sentencing principles
  • Appealing decisions
  • Court records and recording
  • Jury service
