Local Administrators

Each of the five district courts of appeal and each of the 20 circuit courts have their own local administrative structure. Each of these 25 courts is presided over by the chief judge for that jurisdiction.

In each of the five district courts, a clerk and a marshal provide operational assistance to the chief judge. In the 20 circuit courts, a trial court administrator provides operational assistance.

More information on this structure is available in the Florida Rules of Judicial Administration maintained by The Florida Bar.
