Nelson High / District Court

Welcome to the Nelson High / District Court information page: 

Do I need to attend jury service today? (for current jurors).

Welcome to the Ministry of Justice Website

There will be no further Jury Trials until 26 January 2015.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Jurors for attending in 2014 and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Safe New year.

We look forward to seeing all prospective Jurors back in 2015.
