Appeals

Appeals from the Lower Courts and Tribunals

There are provisions for most matters that Local court judges deal with to be appealed to the Supreme Court. An appeal to the Supreme Court from a Local Court or Tribunal is made to a single Judge in the Court’s civil jurisdiction.

Courts of Appeal

Appeals from Supreme Court proceedings are usually heard by three Judges sitting as either the Court of Appeal or Court of Criminal Appeal. The Judges who sit on the Courts of Appeal are Supreme Court Judges but do not include the Judge whose decision or order is being appealed.
