|Civil Court System - England and Wales|
The County Court deals with all but the most complicated or high value civil proceedings. It may also deal with relatively low value cases where legal costs are not usually allowed, and when doing so is often referred to as the ‘Small Claims Court’.
The High Court deals with civil cases of a more substantial or complex nature, and is split into three Divisions:
• The Chancery Division
• The Queen’s Bench Division
• The Family Division
The Civil Division of the Court of Appeal hears appeals from all Divisions of the High Court and in some instances from the County Courts and certain tribunals.
