UK Courts Remain Open In Tier 4 Restrictions

During the lockdown attending Court is listed as an exception to the Stay at Home rule. Courts remain open and operating as normal.

  • to provide emergency assistance, and to avoid injury or illness, or to escape risk of harm (including domestic abuse)
  • to see someone who is dying
  • to fulfil a legal obligation, such as attending court or jury service
  • for gatherings within criminal justice accommodation or immigration detention centres

Even in Tier 4 restrictions, Court hearings are taking place as normal. You must attend Court unless you hear otherwise.
