The District Courts Operational unit is comprised of four main jurisdictions – Criminal, Family, Youth and Civil. It is responsible for providing the infrastructure and support necessary for the efficient and effective management of the Courts systems throughout New Zealand.
District Court Judges are assigned to local Courts, and typically work on circuit within a cluster of satellite Courts, but they may also be deployed on a wider regional basis or elsewhere in New Zealand. It follows that Judges from other areas may be officiating in the local Court from time to time.
