The District Court exercises essentially the same civil jurisdiction as the Supreme Court (except for Probate or Admiralty), and claims for amounts greater than $100,000 for Non-Personal Injury Matters and $100,000 for Personal Injury Claims.

The Civil Registry receives and processes all documents lodged in the civil jurisdiction of the court, and is the principal point of reference for enquiries from the legal profession and the public.
