Abstract

There are costs associated with the administration of a civil justice system. How should those costs be met? That is an important question for all legal systems. In Scotland, it is one that successive Scottish Governments have answered by finding ways for those costs to be met by the users of the court system. Such a policy can broadly be referred to as “full cost recovery”.
