General Department

The General Department deals with actions other than actions to the administrative jurisdiction of the Court which are dealt with by the Petition Department. Actions are started by summons. The purpose of a summons is to set out the basis on which the pursuer seeks to enforce a legal right against another person.

The main duties of the Section Manager is to check Summons to be signed for procedural accuracy, advise the Court customers e.g. solicitors and party litigants, of Court procedures.  Other duties also include monitoring all processes received back from Court and noting interlocutors, dealing with technical and procedural problems.
