Court of Appeal
The Court of Appeal has appellate jurisdiction over both the Magistracy and the High Court, inclusive of the Magisterial and High Court Sections of the Family Court. At present, an appeal from the Court of Appeal in Trinidad and Tobago lies to the Privy Council as of right, or with the leave of that Court.
Section 6 (1) of the Act provides for the number of Judges in the Appeal Court in addition to the Chief Justice who shall be the President of that Court. Justices of Appeal take precedence over High Court Judges. Justices of Appeal and High Court Judges are ranked depending on their length of service on the Bench.
