answer text <p>The number of days sat in the Crown Court in England in the calendar year 2018 was 97,431 days.</p><p> </p><p>The number of sessions sat in magistrates’ courts in England in the calendar year 2018 was 208,711. We don’t count days sat in the magistrates’ court and instead count sessions. A session is usually half a day in length.</p><p> </p><p>We estimate that we will sit around 79,000 days in the Crown Court and around 215,000 sessions in the magistrates’ courts in England in the financial year 2019/20. These estimates are based on how much resource is required to deal with the number of cases expected to be received in 2019/20 and reflect demand in the Crown Court.</p><p> </p><p>We will continue to review demand and performance in the Crown Court and magistrates’ court and will ensure they have the resources they require.</p><p> </p><p>Waiting times for trials in 2018 were the lowest since 2014, despite the challenge of increasingly complex cases</p> more like this
