Legal proceedings at court are conducted in different ways depending on what the matter or case relates to.
We describe here how legal proceedings are conducted in three different situations: if someone has committed an offence (criminal case), if private persons disagree (contentious cases) and if a person wants to appeal against a decision made by an authority.
The consequences for those affected will be different depending upon the nature of the matter.
