An appeal from the youth court, magistrates’ court or Crown Court to the High Court asking a question about the correct interpretation of the law. The appeal must be made within 21 days.1
Such an appeal can be brought by any party to proceedings concluded in a lower court against any order made by the court if it is wrong in law or in excess of jurisdiction.
Appeals can also be brought by any person aggrieved by the decision of an adult magistrate’s court or youth court. The High Court may affirm, reverse or amend any order, or remit the matter back to the original court to make a fresh decision.2
