Hierarchical Structure

The State Courts are headed by the Presiding Judge of the State Courts, who is a Judge or Judicial Commissioner of the Supreme Court with overall responsibility for the leadership and management of the State Courts.

The Presiding Judge of the State Courts is assisted by the Deputy Presiding Judge who concurrently holds the position of Registrar of the State Courts.

The Presiding Judge and Deputy Presiding Judge are supported by the Leadership Team comprising the Principal District Judges, senior judicial officers and senior court administrators. There are four Justice Divisions: Criminal Justice Division, Civil Justice Division, Community Justice and Tribunals Division and State Courts Centre for Dispute Resolution. These Divisions are supported by the Corporate Services Division, and Strategic Planning and Technology Division.
