Please note the Scottish Civil Justice Council’s main functions are to prepare draft rules of procedure for the civil courts and to advise the Lord President on the development of the civil justice system in Scotland. The Council cannot provide advice or comment on individual court cases or ongoing court proceedings or in relation to any court judgement. If you have queries of this nature you may wish to contact the Citizens Advice Bureau or seek advice from a Solicitor. 

Citizens Advice Scotland advises that the Citizens Advice Bureaux network’s in-court advice services are still operating and are still able to provide advice and support throughout Covid-19 related court closures.
