  1. Justice of the Peace

    A Justice of the Peace is a puisne judicial officer elected or appointed by means of a commission to keep the peace. In past centuries the term Commissioner of the Peace was often used with the same meaning. Depending on the jurisdiction, such justices dispense summary justice or merely deal with local administrative applications in common law jurisdictions. Justices of the Peace are appointed or elected from the citizens of the jurisdiction in which they serve, and are usually not required to have any formal legal education in order to qualify for the office. Some jurisdictions have varying forms of training for JPs.
