Simple Procedure

Nov 29, 2016

The new Simple Procedure Rules developed by the Council came into force on 28 November. 

Simple Procedure replaces the current small claims procedure and part of the summary cause procedure.   

Council Chair, the Rt. Hon. Lord Carloway said: “The Simple Procedure has been designed with the party litigant in mind, using accessible language and incorporating user-friendly guidance into the rules.”

Procedural guidance has been produced by the SCTS and can be viewed on their website.
