Change in Sitting Dates 27/09/2016 The Lord President has published a new Direction that sets out the sitting days for the Court of Session for the Legal Years 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20.

Change in Court of Session Sitting Dates

The Lord President has published a new Direction that sets out the sitting days for the Court of Session for the Legal Years 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20. It largely aligns the practice in the Court of Session with the practice in other courts, such as the criminal courts and the Commercial Division.

In effect, the Direction abolishes the traditional three court terms of the Legal Year, and provides that the court is able to sit throughout the year, with effect from the beginning of the legal year 2017/18. This would be subject to two fortnight vacation periods at Christmas and Easter. Accordingly, the court would continue to be ‘in session’ throughout the legal year, subject to vacation periods.

The Direction can be found here and further details are available here.
