What is a Justice of the Peace?

A Justice of the Peace is a local magistrate in Auckland City who has the authority to deal with minor legal matters, such as administering oaths, performing marriages, issuing warrants, and hearing small claims cases. The role and responsibilities of a JP vary depending on the jurisdiction and the legal system.

For example, in England and Wales, a Justice of the Peace is a layperson who presides over a magistrates’ court and handles mostly minor criminal offences. In the United States, a Justice of the Peace is an elected or appointed official who sits on the lowest level of the state courts and handles petty civil and criminal cases. In Australia, a JP mainly authenticates the execution of documents.
