This chapter discusses the relationship between the Court of Appeal in England and Wales and the House of Lords. The Court of Appeal provides the House of Lords with four-fifths of its caseload. According to the annual Judicial Statistics, in the period 2002 to 2007, 68.8% of appeals presented to the Lords came from the Civil Division of the Court of Appeal, and 10% from the Criminal Division. The chapter begins by looking at the civil jurisdictions of the two courts. Some of the material in the following sections is adapted from a recently published study of the Civil Division of the Court of Appeal.

Keywords:   House of Lords, Court of Appeal, review, supervision, oral hearings, Criminal Division
