Supreme Court

Five supreme court justices standing next to each other in a courtroom.


The New Hampshire Supreme Court, composed of the Chief Justice and four Associate Justices, sits in Concord and is the State's only appellate court.

The Supreme Court has jurisdiction to review and decide appeals from the State trial courts and from many State administrative agencies. It also has jurisdiction to issue writs of certiorari, prohibition, and habeas corpus, along with other writs. The duties of the Supreme Court include correcting errors in trial court proceedings, interpreting case law and statutes and the State and federal constitutions, and administration of the courts.
