Courts of General and Quarter Sessions

Known as Quarter Sessions, it was a court which could deal with 'crimes and misdemeanours not punishable by death' and was formalised in New South Wales in 1824 under the provisions of the 'Better Administration of Justice in New South Wales Act 1823'. The court ceased in 1973 when the Quarter Sessions were abolished, establishing one District Court of New South Wales.
