Court and Tribunal Finder

The Court and Tribunal Finder on the GOV.UK site provides an alphabetical listing of all courts and probate offices in England and Wales and all tribunals in England, Wales and Scotland. It includes information on each court’s and tribunal’s address and facilities, opening hours, contact details, how to get there, and type of work (eg civil, family). There are also options which allow for searching by area of law and postcode and by name or address of a court or tribunal.


CourtServe, from Courtel Communications Ltd, provides a court list distribution service in electronic format to the legal community in England and Wales. Coverage includes lists published by all Crown, County and Family Courts, courts based at the Royal Courts of Justice and the Rolls Building, and Employment Tribunals. Registration is required to access the free listing services and the Case List Archives. Premium services available only to subscribers include Crown Express, County Express, RCJ Express and Employment Tribunal Express. These are email services which provide the very latest lists as they are published. Emailed lists are printable (this is not the case with free access) and searchable. Additional free information on the site includes a directory of chambers which subscribe to CourtServe’s services, and links to the Courts and Tribunals Finder and to Employment Tribunal contact details, both on the GOV.UK site.

This section of the Justice web portal has the daily court hearing lists primarily for the courts which are based at the Royal Courts of Justice and the Rolls Building. These include the High Court, Court of Appeal, Court of Protection and the Upper Tribunal.

HM Courts & Tribunals Service

It was created on 1 April 2011, bringing together Her Majesty’s Courts Service and the Tribunals Service to form a single integrated agency of the Ministry of Justice. HMCTS information here on the GOV.UK site includes a court and tribunal finder, a form finder, and information on fees and payment of fines.
