Litigation and The Courts:

There are different courts, which hear different cases. As such, there are also courts which will not be courts of first instance. In order for a civil case to reach those courts, the case must first be heard in a court which has authority to be a court of first instance.

This is relevant information when preparing yourself for legal action. The different court also deal with different cases in terms of its particular financial outcomes. Like the small claims court will only hear cases which demand small outcomes. A litigation lawyer will advise on the particulars of which court will hear your case. With that said, a litigation lawyer cannot bring a case to the Constitutional Court, or the Supreme Court of Appeals on first instance. Litigation must first be brought to courts such as the High Court, or Magistrates Court. other first instance courts include the Small Claims Court, Labour Court, Children’s Court, and Maintenance Court. Of course, also depending on the nature of the specific civil case, the litigation lawyer will bring it to the court which deals specifically with cases related to that particular situation. Labour issues, for instance, will be heard in Labour Court.
