Judiciary of Scotland

Welcome to the website of the judiciary in Scotland.  You will find lots of information about judges, the work they do in each of the different courts and some helpful advice if you are attending court or simply want to come in and see what happens.  

You can also find up-to-date information on the latest sentencing statements which will allow you to read what a judge has said in court on passing sentence.  We also publish summaries of opinions, fatal accident inquiry determinations and other major court decisions in Scotland.
