Costs orders are another form of legal jargon. The costs orders being discussed here are orders ‘between the parties’. This means when a party is successful at a hearing or trial, whether they should be entitled to have their costs paid by the other side and if so, how much? Charges payable by a client to their solicitor, are paid according to the contract and are rarely dealt with during a court case.
It is not unusual for clients to sit at hearings and trials and not understand whether they have "won", or what the judge has ordered on costs. It is only when the lawyer later tells the client, that they start to understand what has happened. If the judge was critical of the solicitor or barrister, the client may not get the full explanation.
