The Register of Judgments is temporarily closed to paper applications.

Applications can be submitted via our new digital submission service.

Registration can:

  • permit certain overseas judgments to be recognised and enforced in Scotland
  • enable certain Scottish judgments to be enforced overseas

Find out about what can be registered and registration requirements in chapter 62 of the Court of Session Rules.

Any applications for judgments made under chapter 62 of the Court of Session Rules should be addressed to the manager of the Chancery and Judicial Registers, quoting the rule the application is being made under.

This register is one of three divisions of the Books of Council and Session, along with the Register of Deeds and Register of Protests.
