The Vermont Judiciary is a coequal branch of government. It is an important element in the balance of power among the three branches of government. This balance of power is essential to the vitality of our democracy.The courts provide a forum for resolution of disputes. This includes cases that address the protection of individual rights and public safety. It also includes cases that address business and commercial concerns.

The Vermont Judiciary consists of an appellate court, which is the Supreme Court, and a trial court, known as the Vermont Superior Court. There are 14 units of the Superior Court, one corresponding to each county. The Superior Court has five divisions: civil, criminal, environmental, family, and probate. The Superior Court also has a Judicial Bureau, which has statewide jurisdiction. Each of these courts has a distinct role in providing justice.
