Our Organisation 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 and the Registrar of the State Courts, who oversees the administration of the courts and management of the support operations of the organisation. The Registrar also performs judicial duties.


The State Courts comprise the Criminal Justice Division, Civil Justice Division, Community Justice and Tribunals Division, State Courts Centre for Dispute Resolution, and the Presiding Judge’s Office which is made up of the Corporate Services Division, Strategic Planning and Technology Division, Legal Directorate and Centre for Learning. Each is helmed by senior judicial officers and supported by court administrators.
