Last updated: 7 August 2017

After you've given evidence

When the lawyers finish asking their questions, the judge or sheriff will tell you when you can leave. You're free to go and shouldn't have to come back.

You shouldn't go back to the witness room or discuss your evidence with other witnesses.

Find out about what to do if you want to sit in the public gallery and listen to the rest of the case, and how to find out the outcome of the case.
