The Freedom of Information Act 2014 allows members of the public to access information held by the Courts Service which is not routinely available through other sources.

This site provides a range of easily accessible information within a Publication Scheme and also provides a disclosure log detailing Freedom of Information requests processed by the Courts Service.

Some of the records held by the Courts Service are routinely available to the public. For example, you can get lists of court sittings such as the Legal Diary. This type of information is available without the need to make a request under the Freedom of Information Act.
