Most of the rules mentioned under step 11 (using the Appeal/Higher Courts) that are applicable to appeals in the County Court and the High Court are also applicable to the Court of Appeals but with a few exceptions.


From which court can I appeal to the Court of Appeals

Generally, you can only appeal to the Court of Appeals if you are appealing a decision of the High Court.

  • there is some other compelling reason for the Court of Appeal to hear it.
