Moving forward, we have transformed and upgraded our website to make it user-friendly with regularly updated news on all our activities. We have also made our website a hub for your trusted information on all judicial and legal issues in the country. This upgrading is indeed unique because we have made sure that we also provide our Court users with weekly Cause List, Judgements, Rulings, Speeches and relevant Acts that will meet the demands of our users.
It is hoped that the website would become a conduit through which we should be able to showcase the activities and outputs of the Judiciary as we strive to ensure that the citizenry of Sierra Leone have access to improved justice delivery service.

Ours is a job to settle matters of conflict peaceably between individuals.
