Basic people's court

A basic people's court (基层人民法院) is a lowest level court in the Courts of General Jurisdiction in the People's Republic of China. According to the "Organic Law of the People's Courts of the People's Republic of China", the basic people's courts handle the first instance cases at the local level.

Basic people's courts are set up at the county and municipal level. They consist of a president, vice president, and judges. A basic court may be further divided into criminal, civil, and economic divisions. Basic people's courts also handle cases that are deemed too trivial to require a trial.
