Courts & Tribunals

The Department of Justice provides administrative and corporate support to NSW courts and tribunals.

Our courts are among the most efficient in Australia in terms of timeliness, disposal of matters and cost. Many court sites use innovative technology such as videoconferencing so that witnesses can give evidence from remote locations, without having to attend court.

In this section you can locate or learn about the nine courts and four tribunals in NSW, including the process if you need to go to one and your options to resolve disputes out of court.
