Quick Reference

The division of the High Court of Justice created by the Judicature Acts 1873–75 to replace the Court of Chancery. The work of the Division is principally concerned with matters relating to real property, trusts, and the administration of estates but also includes cases concerned with company law, patents and other intellectual property, and confidentiality cases. The effective head of the Division is the Vice Chancellor, although the Lord Chancellor is nominally its president. It may hear some appeals. See also appellate jurisdiction; Companies Court.
