Subordinate Courts of Singapore

Subordinate Courts of Singapore

The Subordinate Courts of Singapore is one of the two tiers of the court system in Singapore, the other tier being the Supreme Court. The Subordinate Courts comprise the District and Magistrate Courts—both of which oversee civil and criminal matters—as well as specialised family, juvenile, coroner's courts. Initially, these courthouses were located in different areas of Singapore, but this came to an end in 1975 when a centralised Subordinate Courts Complex was constructed at 1 Havelock Square.
