Court users should be aware that there are specific rules that have been implemented in response to Covid-19. For the most up-to-date information for every level of court, visit the Saskatchewan Law Courts website.

There are different rules for the different courts in Saskatchewan. Understanding our court system and the role of judges and lawyers can help individuals deal with their legal issues.

Court System

Depending on the nature of your dispute or legal matter, our court system is designed to deal with a variety of issues. Rules and procedures vary from court to court.

Judges

Judges have a crucial role to play on our judicial system and must remain impartial. They must make decisions based only on the law and the evidence before the court.

Lawyers

Answers to all your questions about lawyers, from their qualifications to what to expect when working with them to information about billing and complaints.

Going to Small Claims Court

Small Claims Court provides individuals with a simpler, less expensive option for settling disputes where the amount claimed is not more than $30,000.

Going to Queen's Bench Court

Many matters can be heard in the Court of Queen's Bench, including more serious criminal code matters, civil suits, family law matters, wills and estates, and bankruptcy proceedings.

Civil Trials

If you are involved in a civil case it is important to understand the rules of evidence and what to expect at different stages of the trial process.
