About the Kansas Legal System

Kansas has a single federal court, a court of supreme, a court of appeals, and trial courts that have both limited and general jurisdiction. They serve different purposes.

Kansas's state court judges are selected largely by gubernatorial appointments. This is paired with assisted appointment or senator confirmation, depending on the court's level. Partisan elections are also used by some district courts.

The Kansas District Court for the District of Kansas is the federal district court.

Appeals from this area go to the U.S. Court of Appeals, 10th Circuit

The Kansas Supreme Court was founded in 1861 and has seven judgeships.

It hears appeals from the district courts in criminal cases, and appeals in all other cases in which a statute is deemed unconstitutional. It can review Kansas Court of Appeals decisions or transfer cases to the supreme. In several cases, the supreme court has exclusive jurisdiction.

The Kansas Court of Appeals, which has 14 members, is Kansas' intermediate appellate court. The governor appoints judges and they are confirmed by the majority vote of the state senator for four-year terms. Retention elections are required for judges who want to continue serving additional terms. Kansas Supreme Court chooses the chief judge for the court of appeals. The chief judge assigns judges and selects cases to each panel of three-judge judges.

The Kansas district courts are Kansas's trial courts. The Kansas Constitution created the Kansas district courts. They have the general jurisdiction to hear all civil and criminal cases.

Kansas Municipal Courts deal with traffic cases and minor offenses. A bench trial is when a judge decides on cases without the participation of a jury. A municipal court defendant can appeal to the county district judge.

About Kansas

Fort Leavenworth was the first European-American settlement in Kansas. In the middle of the political wars over slavery, the pace of settlement picked up in the 1850s. In 1854, the U.S. government opened the territory for settlement with the Kansas-Nebraska Act. Abolitionist Free-Staters from New England and pro-slavery settlers came from Missouri to see if Kansas would be a free or slave state. As these forces clashed, the area became a hotbed for violence and chaos and was called Bleeding Kansas. The abolitionists won and Kansas became a free state on January 29, 1861. This earned it the nickname "The Free State".

Kansas was one the most productive states in agriculture, with high yields of soybeans, corn, sorghum, and wheat. Kansas is home to 82,278 sq. miles and is the 15th largest state in terms of area. It is also the 36th most populous state of all 50. Kansasans are the name given to residents. Mount Sunflower, Kansas's highest peak at 4,039 feet, is the highest point.
