Company description
The High Court of Justiciary deals with criminal appeals and serious criminal cases. Trials are held before a judge and jury. In Scotland a jury consists of fifteen people who are selected for each trial by means of a ballot. People cited to attend for jury service are chosen randomly from the electoral roll. Although the Court is based in Edinburgh, trials are held in towns and cities throughout Scotland as a means of reducing inconvenience to witnesses, jurors and court users
