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.


Public daily cause lists for the Royal Courts of Justice and Crown/Combined High Courts, Employment Tribunals and County Courts in England and Wales, provided by Courtel Communications Limited. Registration is required for the listing services and for the Archive. There are several additional services for subscribers, providing the very latest updates and lists which are printable (this is not the case with free access) and searchable. The RCJ Express subscription service gives access to Royal Courts of Justice lists by e-mail, before they appear on the internet. Crown Express provides the same facility for Crown Court lists, County Express for County Court lists and Employment Tribunal Express for Employment Tribunal lists. Additional free information on the site includes a directory of chambers which subscribe to the service, and there are links to external directories of Crown Courts, county courts and Employment Tribunals.
