Remand is where a court gives a case back to another court. If you are studying US law you will typically see a court remand a case back to another court in two situations: (i) after an appeal; (ii) after a case is improperly removed to federal court. I talked a bit about remand after improper removal in an earlier post. You will also often see an appellate court remand a case back to a trial court. For example, if an appellate court thinks that a trial court applies a law incorrectly, the appellate court can remand the case back to the trial court and instruct the court to apply the law correctly.
