Divisional court (queens bench)

This term is used when the high court is sitting in its appeal capacity.

Some of the cases in the Administrative Court will be heard by a Divisional Court which is a court consisting of two or more judges. These will usually be in criminal cases including a number of the more difficult extradition cases.

Case stated appeals are appeals on a point of law and these go to the Queen’s Bench Divisional Court, which in effect means the High Court sitting in its appellant jurisdiction. 

Such an appeal is usually heard by a panel of two or three High Court judges although on occasions a judge from the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division) may join them and form part of the panel. 

The Queen's Bench Divisional court will hear appeals by way of case stated on a point of law from a lower criminal court of first instance.
