The Courts Act 1971 is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom (c 23) the purpose of which was to reform and modernise the courts system of England and Wales.It established the Crown Court, introduced the posts of circuit judge and recorder, and abolished various local courts across the country. Many of its provisions have since been repealed by the Senior Courts Act 1981, but the essential structure described in the Act is still in place.The first part of the Act concerns the new Crown Court. It is established as part of the Supreme Court of Judicature, replacing courts of assize and Quarter Sessions. The appellate jurisdiction of these courts is transferred, and the new court given exclusive jurisdiction in trial in indictment. It is described as a superior court of record for England and Wales. This section has now been superseded by the Supreme Court Act.
