New Rules: Court of Session sittings

Nov 28, 2017

This Act of Sederunt (Rules of the Court of Session 1994 Amendment) (Sittings of the Court) 2017 sets out when the Court of Session sits and comes into force on 1 January 2018.

In September, last year, the Lord President made Direction No 1 of 2016, under Chapter 10 of the Rules of the Court of Session, making provision to modernise the sittings of the Court by abolishing the summer vacation and term dates.

The replacement Chapter 10 now includes the sitting dates in the body of the Rules themselves, rather than in a separate Direction, allowing court users to see at a glance when the Court is sitting.
