Ohio Judicial System Structure
The Constitution of Ohio separates our state government into three branches, each with distinct areas of responsibility — the executive, the legislative and the judicial.
The primary function of the judicial branch is to fairly and impartially resolve disputes according to the law. To do this, a number of courts have been established in the state by the Constitution and by acts of the General Assembly.
In addition to its place in the court structure as the Ohio court of last resort, the Ohio Supreme Court is responsible for the administration of the judicial branch in Ohio.
Ohio’s judicial structure consists of:
- The Supreme Court of Ohio
- Ohio Second District Court of Appeals
- Court of Common Pleas
- Municipal and County Courts
- Court of Claims
