It is with great sadness that we have learned tonight of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Along with the nation, we mourn the loss of our Monarch and, as a mark of respect, all courts and tribunals in Scotland will be adjourned on Friday 9 September, following the conclusion of any essential business.

Flags will be lowered at Scottish Courts and Tribunals buildings and the Lord President has sent condolences to the Royal Family on behalf of the judiciary in Scotland. A statement from the Lord President is available here 

From Monday 12 September the majority of court and tribunal business will continue during the period of mourning.

Updates on any changes to scheduled business and operations during the mourning period will be published on our website here.
