UK Courts Explained

UK law and the UK courts are part of a very complicated system. This is because it has been developed over 1000 years, rather than being designed from scratch as the perfect structure.

There’s the Magistrates Court and the Crown Court, the Court of Appeals and the High Court. Different types of cases are tried in different courts and some apply to England and Wales, others to England Wales and Scotland.

Where do you begin to work out what happens where and if you ever need to go to court, where your case might end up?

With this infographic, we show you the structure of the UK courts and explain what happens in each one. It’s an easy to digest, visual guide that should give you a better understanding of something we all take for granted.
