In the court of appeal, is it applicant and respondent or appellant and respondent. Also, the terminology offender relates to civil or criminal law. Does offender mean accused or defendant. Further, do the terminologies for civil and criminal laws change in the court of appeal to applicant and respondent while in other courts they remain the same.October 10, 2019 at 7:19 am
Appellant (not applicant)
Offender is in criminal law
Offender is the accused
Depends what you mean by “other courts”! An ‘appelant’ is someone that is making an ‘appeal’ – the two words have a common root
OK?October 10, 2019 at 7:58 am
By other courts I mean the courts covered in the syllabus like ecj, high court, country court, crown court, tribunals etc. Also what is the difference between tribunals and emplyment appeal tribunal.October 10, 2019 at 2:10 pm
Again, you have typed ‘country court’ instead of ‘county court’ – is this your spell-checker or are you simply using the wrong word?
Where a case is being appealed, the participants become appellant and respondent no matter which court (I believe)
An employment appeal tribunal is merely an example of a tribunal
If you think in terms of a tribunal being a less formal dispute-resolve mechanism (less formal than a court hearing) then, where that dispute being resolved is one concerning employees’ rights, the relevant tribunal will be an employment appeal tribunal
OK?October 10, 2019 at 3:21 pm
ok. I had wrongly taken the word country for county. The reason I typed country instead of county even in this question was that I typed this question prior to seeing the answer to the previous question.October 10, 2019 at 4:54 pm
Not a problem! Hope that I’ve cleared up that point as well as the others that you raised
