UK Supreme Court to sit in Scotland

The UK Supreme Court will sit in Edinburgh later this year, the first time that the UK's highest court has sat outside London.

Several appeals will be heard over up to four days in June, with at least five of the Supreme Court Justices sitting over the course of the visit. The list of cases to be heard during the visit are in the process of being finalised.

The Court will sit in the City Chambers, home of the City of Edinburgh Council.

As the Supreme Court will not be sitting in a Scottish court building and will be following its standard rules and procedures, it is envisaged that proceedings will be filmed and relayed live online in the usual way.
