Petitions Department

The Petition Department deals with applications by individuals or organisation (e.g. Local Authorities) to the administrative jurisdiction of the Court.

Actions are checked for procedural accuracy and registered by the Assistant Clerk of Session. Staff also receive and check all motions which are made to the Court during the course of a case for procedural competency and receive and checking caveats (a procedure where an individual can seek to be alerted to the commencement of certain types of Court proceedings).

All interlocutors (written orders of Court) are recorded through the Court books on a daily basis.
