Courts and tribunals tracker list during coronavirus outbreak

This page holds a tracker list of open, staffed and suspended courts during the coronavirus outbreak. It will be regularly updated.

The work of courts and tribunals will be consolidated into fewer buildings, maintaining the safety of all in the courts and in line with public health advice.

Our court and tribunal buildings are divided as follows:

  • 305 open courts – these buildings are open to the public for essential face-to-face hearings
  • 18 staffed courts – staff and judges will work from these buildings, but they will not be open to the public
  • 18 suspended courts – these courts will be temporarily closed

Details of the current status of courts or tribunals, including those which are currently holding jury trials, are also available in the tracker list on this page.
