In this week you learnt about the classification of civil and criminal unlawful conduct and the consequences that follow this. You also considered the factors to be considered when bringing a case to court.
If you want to find out more about bringing a case to court in Scotland there are a number of voluntary organisations whose websites contain information on how to bring a case, the things to think about, appealing parking tickets etc., These include the Citizens Advice Bureau Scotland website, the courts in Scotland website – their details can be found on the additional resources page at the end of the course.
You should now be able to:
- explain the categorisation into civil or criminal
- explain the difference between burden and standard of proof
- describe the factors relevant to bringing a case to court.
Having learnt that there are two separate justice systems, civil and criminal, next week explores the court structure in Scotland.
You can now go to.
