Every day judges in courts across Scotland make decisions in both civil and criminal cases. They ensure cases and verdicts are within the limits of the law and hand down judgments and sentences. Some of these decisions and sentences are published below.
Welcome to the judicial website.
We hope that you find this website both helpful and informative. It is our intention to publish as much information as we can, as quickly as we can. We believe it is vital in a democracy that justice is not only seen to be done, but that it operates in an open and transparent way and contributes to public understanding and awareness of what takes place in courts each day across Scotland.
