These statistics focus on 3 main categories: civil, family and criminal matters. There is also additional information on judicial reviews.

Key Findings
Civil (excluding family) cases
  • In October to December 2015, courts dealt with around 390,000 claims. There were also around 34,000 allocations, 63,000 defences and 214,000 judgments. The number of claims courts dealt with is similar to the same quarter in the previous year, defences were down 6%, allocations down 4% whilst judgments increased by 8%..
  • Looking over the longer term, the total number of claims increased in 2013 and 2014 compared with previous years however, provisional figures for 2015 show a small decrease (down 3%) indicating a possible change in overall trend.
  • Judgments fell between 2009 and 2012, but have since seen year on year increases with provisional figures for 2015 showing an increase of 4% compared to the previous year. The contradictory trend in judgments compared with claims reflects the lag in the system i.e. the time taken for a case to move through the system from claim to judgment..
Judicial Reviews at the Administrative Court
  • During 2015, there were around 4,680 applications lodged at the Administrative Court, up 15% on the previous year..
  • 65% of the applications lodged in 2015 have now closed. A lower proportion of cases became eligible for a final hearing -13% compared with 20% of cases in 2014. Of the 588 cases in 2015 that were eligible for a final hearing, to date 122 have reached a decision. Of these, 63 (1% of all cases lodged in 2015) were found in favour of the appellant..
  • From 1 October 2012 to 31 December 2015, around 28,000 cases were lodged and 17,000 (60%) had reached permission or oral renewal stage. Of those that had reached these stages, 26% were found to be totally without merit.
Privacy Injunctions
  • During July to December 2015, there were two applications for new interim privacy injunctions and one application for continuation of an injunction. There were no applications for a final privacy injunction.

Key Findings
Civil (excluding family) cases
  • In October to December 2014, courts dealt with 379,000 claims and 196,000 judgements were made (1% and 15% higher respectively than same quarter last year).
  • In contrast, the number of defences stood at 46,000, down 18% on the same quarter the previous year and the fifth consecutive year on year decrease (when compared to the same quarter the previous year).
  • There were 829,000 judgements in 2014, up 25% on 2013. The increase is due to the combination of an increase in claims and a decrease in claims being defended, leading to more default judgements occurring.
  • In 2014, both the claimant and defendant had legal representation in 71% of defences (compared to 65% in 2013) whilst neither the respondent nor the claimant had representation in 14% of defences, This is driven by defences of specified money claims, which account for 55% of all defences and in almost all such defences (97%), both sides were legally represented.
  • There was an average of 59 weeks between a fast or multi-track claim being issued and the claim going to trial, compared with 60 weeks in the same period in 2013.
Judicial Reviews at the Administrative Court
  • In 2014 there were 4,100 applications lodged at the Administrative Court, compared with 15,600 in 2013. The sharp decrease in the most recent year is due to a change in policy whereby the majority of immigration and asylum Judicial Reviews are now dealt with by the Upper Tribunal for Immigration and Asylum Chamber (UTIAC).
  • 70% of the applications lodged in 2014 have now closed. A higher proportion of closed cases were eligible for a final hearing in 2014 (16%) compared with 2013 (10%).
  • The proportion of all cases lodged found in favour of the claimant at a final hearing has reduced from 12% in 2000 to 1% in 2012 and has remained the same in 2013 and 2014.
Privacy Injunctions
  • In the period July to December 2014, there was one privacy injunction proceeding dealt with by the Royal Courts of Justice (RCJ) in London. This was for a new interim injunction.
