Delaware's government is separated by the Delaware Constitution into an executive branch, a legislative branch, and a judicial branch.
A lawyer must be aware of the workings of all three parts of the government, and how they function together to provide services to his or her clients, including business planning, the writing of wills, the formation of contracts, and many other legal services.
While the legislative branch is the one that creates laws, and the executive branch is the one that oversees the implementation of the laws, the judicial branch is often what most people think of when they talk about the law.
This section of DeLawOffice is intended to help you learn about Delaware's judicial system.
The Delaware Court System has roots and history that go back hundreds of years. Each court has a purpose and a type of case that it is allowed to handle. This is called that court's "jurisdiction."
The Delaware Supreme Court, through Chief Justice Myron T. Steele, is the administrative head of the Delaware Court System.
