The Local Court deals with civil cases and the Court of Summary Jurisdiction mostly deals with less serious criminal cases.
The Magistrates also have jurisdiction to hear matters in a number of other courts, such as the Juvenile Court, the Family Matters Court, Local Court, Small Claims Court and the Work Health Court.
