Magistrates and Magistrates' Courts
Magistrates' courts are a key part of the criminal justice system and 95% of cases are completed there. In addition to criminal cases, magistrates' courts deal with many civil cases e.g. family matters, liquor licensing and betting and gaming.
All local hearings are held at Croydon Magistrates Court.
