The Magistrates Courts is a court building on Dale Street, Liverpool. It is a Grade II listed building designed by John Weightman built between 1857-1859.[1] Until the 1970s buildings in Great Crosshall Street were used for juvenile court hearings until a new purpose-built complex was opened accessible from Hatton Garden. There are also courtrooms in Victoria Street which are mostly used for hearing road traffic cases. They are operated by Her Majesty's Courts Service.

In 2007 it was announced that the Dale Street building will close to be replaced by a new purpose built set of courts.[2] Approval for the project was given, with a budget of £35m, for a new complex to be built in the city centre, comprising 14 adult courtrooms, with a projected completion date of 2012.[3]

Paul O'Grady was an assistant clerk at the court in the early 1970s.
