Court of Appeal

4.14.0 Updated on:


The Judicial Greffe is responsible for all administrative arrangements for the Court of Appeal, including providing advice on court procedures for those wishing to bring an appeal.


The Court of Appeal Section of the Judicial Greffe provides a service to record proceedings and judgements given in the Superior Courts in Jersey. The recordings can be transcribed or produced in writing when this is required. A litigant can be supplied with a transcript of hearings in which they have been involved.


Time spent in custody pending appeal does not count as part of a sentence. There is a statutory six week period which the law states should be served by anyone whose appeal fails. This is designed to persuade people not to bring appeal applications which are unlikely to succeed.
