Litigation and the courts

It should be noted, first of all, that different dispute cases go to different courts. The Constitutional Court only deals with cases related to constitutional issues and is never a court of first instance. So it is, too, with the Supreme Court of Appeals. This court deals with appeals and is never a court of first instance.

In order to appear in any of them, litigation has to start in a court that has authority to be a court of first instance, such as the Magistrates Court or the High Court. Other such courts include the Small Claims Court, Labour Court, Children’s Court, and Maintenance Court. Also owing to what the specific dispute is related to, will likewise determine which court will hear the case. A litigation attorney, or litigation attorney South Africa, will proceed with and represent his client in the rightful court correlated to the specific case. A litigation attorney deals in all areas of civil law and the procedures differ to that of criminal law, for example. There are different areas of civil law, and litigation attorneys may even practice in certain areas and issues related to labour disputes. Litigation attorneys act as legal representation for people or organisations faced with civil disputes.
