How does the Supreme Court Representation work?

The Supreme Court, as well as being the final court of appeal, plays an important role in the development of United Kingdom law. As an appeal court, The Supreme Court cannot consider a case unless a relevant order has been made in a lower court.

In general the Supreme Court hears appeals from the Court of Appeal in England and Wales and in Northern Ireland and from the Court of Session in Scotland. There are, however, strict limits on the Supreme Court's jurisdiction. For example, it is not possible to appeal to the Supreme Court against

  • the refusal by the Court of Appeal or by a Judge in the High Court or a County Court to grant permission to appeal to that court;
  • the refusal by the Court of Appeal or the High Court to reopen an appeal or an application for permission to appeal to that court; and
  • decisions made by Tribunals, a Magistrates' Court or a Sheriff.

The Covid pandemic has drastically changed the way courts carry out their hearings. To comply with social distancing, most hearings are done remotely by telephone or facetime/ Skype instead of in person at a courtroom. The traditional court bundles compiled in leverarches are no longer used in remote hearings, instead, parties will use electronic bundles on their computers. This new form of bundling is not as straightforward as it seems. The electronic bundle must comply with the electronic bundle guidelines set out in Civil Procedure rules. The requirements are briefly as follows: 

  • All bundles must, where the character of the document permits, be the subject of OCR (optical character recognition). This is the process which turns the document from a mere picture of a document to one in which the text can be read as text so that the document becomes word-searchable and words can be highlighted in the process of marking them up.
  • All documents should appear in portrait mode. If an original document is in landscape, then it should be inserted so that it can be read with a 90 degree rotation clockwise. No document should appear upside down.
  • The default view for all pages should be 100%.
  • In a PDF format 
  • All pages in a bundle must be numbered, and if possible by a computer generated numbering, or at least in typed form (if added by a scanner), and not numbered by hand. If computer generated or typed the number becomes machine readable and can be searched for. Again if possible, the number should be preceded by a letter, whether the letter of the bundle or not. This aids searching
  • The maximum electronic bundle size is 36Mb. If your bundle goes beyond this size you must send the remaining bundle in a separate PDF folder with a clear label.
