United Kingdom: Court of Session (Scotland)

The Court of Session, Scotland's supreme civil court, sits as a court of first instance and a court of appeal. An appeal lies to the House of Lords. The court is divided into the Outer House and the Inner House. The Outer House hear cases at first instance on a wide range of civil matters, including cases based on delict (tort) and contract, commercial cases and judicial review. The Inner House is in essence the appeal court, though it has a small range of first instance business. It is divided into the First and the Second Divisions, of equal authority, and presided over by the Lord President and the Lord Justice Clerk respectively. The Divisions hear cases on appeal from the Outer House, the Sheriff Court and certain tribunals and other bodies. Website: www.scotcourts.gov.uk/session/index.asp
