I am confused on this question I found,
Liam was convicted of a criminal offence by a Magistrate’s Court in the English legal system.
If Liam has grounds to appeal, which court will the case move to next?
A Crown Court
B High Court
C Court of Appeal
D Supreme Court
I first answered A, because I thought it goes to Crown Court from Magistrate’s Court as the diagram was shown in the BPP textbook.
However, why does the answer key state like this “Appeals from a Magistrate’s Court are heard by the High Court (Queen’s Bench Division).” ?
Does it always go directly to High Court from the Magistrate’s Court?
Thank you Sir
I believe that this is an interesting article from the web … though I have to admit to some degree of confusion with BPP’s answer
Unless the question has mentioned ‘… appeal by way of case stated’
