    A high court has jurisdiction in its own area over all persons residing or present in that area. These courts hear matters that are of such a serious nature that the lower courts would not be competent to make an appropriate judgment or to impose a penalty. Except where a minimum or maximum sentence is prescribed by law, their penal jurisdiction is unlimited and includes handing down a sentence of life imprisonment in certain specified cases.

    I recently had the privilege of witnessing court proceedings on a matter between a large financial services company and their client. For any first timers to this court, there are a number of things you need to be aware of.

    Firstly, security inside the court is very good but entering or leaving the building could be an issue. The court is located in the Jo'burg CBD, next to the busy Small Street mall. There is limited police presence in the area, so be vigilant.

    If you are spending the day at the court, know where to find coffee & food. The trick is to follow the legal eagles, they have a hangout next to the lawyers chambers. Compared to what's around, it's GREAT.

    Avoid parking on the street and find one of the parkades that have security.

    Inside the court, things are well run, clean and organised.

    Hope this helps.
