How does the Court of Appeal Representation work?
The UK judicial system has layers. Most of our cases start off in the Administrative Court, which is a branch of the High Court. The appeal route from there is to the Court of Appeal and then to the Supreme Court.
The Court of Appeal hears appeals. Either party in a litigation claim can make an appeal to have a judge of higher standing re-evaluate their judgement. This is subject to permission being granted. The lower court may grant permission, but this is unusual as it is a way of saying that the judge accepts the decision may not be right. More often, permission is refused and one has to apply for permission from the Court of Appeal itself. It is vital to initiate this process quickly. One has to lodge an "Appellant's Notice" within 21 days of the decision to be appealed along with grounds of appeal.
