Today’s episode focuses on the inferior courts of England and Wales. We find out about the magistrates’ court, the Family Court and the County Court including:
-what they do – what type of cases they hear;
-what ‘judges’ work in these courts;
-the sentences they can impose or remedies they can award.
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.
