trial of the case on the merits. At the same time, the appellate court
not only verifies the correctness of the decisions of the court of first
instance, but also resolves the case on its merits. This type of
appeal is inherent in the civil process of France, Italy, England,

(American English), appeal court (British English), court of second instance
or second instance court, is any court of law that is empowered to hear an
appeal of a trial court or other lower tribunal. In most jurisdictions, the
court system is divided into at least three levels: the trial court, which
initially hears cases and reviews evidence and testimony to determine the
facts of the case; at least one intermediate appellate court; and a supreme
court (or court of last resort) which primarily reviews the decisions of the
intermediate courts. A jurisdiction's supreme court is that jurisdiction's
highest appellate court. Appellate courts nationwide can operate under
against the punishment to the local Crown Court, and the
Crown Court judge will hear the appeal without a jury. If a
defendant has a good reason to believe the magistrates
have made a mistake about a point of law, then he may
appeal to the Queen's Bench Division of the High Court.
affirm, reverse, or vacate the decision of a lower court. Some courts
maintain a dual function, where they consider both appeals as well
as matters of "first instance". For example, the Supreme Court of
the United States primarily hears cases on appeal but retains
original jurisdiction over a limited range of cases. Some
jurisdictions maintain a system of intermediate appellate courts,
which are subject to the review of higher appellate courts. The
highest appellate court in a jurisdiction is sometimes referred to as
a "court of last resort".
European Court of Human Rights.
The ECtHR is an international court that hears complaints
concerning breaches of the European Convention on Human
Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. A dissatisfied litigant
might complain to the ECtHR that English law has violated his
rights. A decision in the ECtHR will not change English law, and
it is up to the Government of the United Kingdom to decide
what action (if any) to take after an adverse finding.
