Summary Sheriffs 04/04/2016 Summary Sheriffs began sitting in Scotland’s Sheriff Courts for the first time last week

Summary Sheriffs

Summary Sheriffs began sitting in Scotland’s Sheriff Courts for the first time last week, as part of reforms to the Scottish court system under The Courts Reform (Scotland) Act 2014.

The Act created a new judicial office of summary sheriff to deal with some types of civil and criminal cases in the sheriff court. It also abolished the office of stipendiary magistrate. The move is part of the Scottish Government’s reform of the system to improve efficiency and ensure the right cases are heard in the right courts.
