E46 – The Court System Today (Monologue)

Today’s episode focuses on the court system of England and Wales as it is today. We find out about how we can categorise the courts including:

-into a hierarchy of inferior and senior courts;
-into criminal and civil courts;
-into trial and appellate courts.

This episode is part of the course English Legal System (module 3): Courts and Tribunals. In future episodes we’ll be giving more detail about each court and tribunal as well as about the people who work in the courts.
