What Is 'Small Claims Court'?

3223 views • Jul 26, 2017

A small claims court in many jurisdictions is a court that handles matters where the sums involved are less than $5000. These courts are traditionally slower and less formal than the unlimited jurisdiction courts. People are free to represent themselves without a lawyer in these courts and, given the amount that is usually at stake, the parties usually do not retain counsel.
