Cultural note: COURT In Inghilterra, Galles e Irlanda del Nord i processi penali per i reati più gravi si svolgono nella "Crown Court", davanti a un giudice e a una giuria popolare formata da 12 giurati. I reati minori sono invece di competenza delle "magistrates' courts", di fronte a un magistrato ma senza giuria. Le "local courts" si occupano della maggior parte dei processi civili di minore entità, mentre quelli più complessi vengono giudicati dalla "High Court". In appello, sia i processi penali che quelli civili si svolgono in primo grado di fronte alla "Court of Appeal" e in ultima istanza di fronte alla Camera dei Lord. Nel sistema giudiziario scozzese la High Court of Justiciary si occupa dei processi penali per i reati più gravi e le sheriff courts di quelli per i reati minori. La Court of Session rappresenta il tribunale civile di grado superiore. federal court
