Children's Court of Queensland - Constitution of The Court

Constitution of The Court

The court is constituted by either a single judge or a single magistrate depending on the nature of the crime allegedly committed. In most cases, the matters will be dealt with by either a children's court judge or children's court magistrate. However, if one is not available, then a district court judge or a stipendiary magistrate may deal with the case even though they have not been appointed by the governor.
