About the Nevada Legal System

There is one federal court in Nevada. A state supreme court and a state court. Trial courts have both limited and general jurisdiction.

Nevada's supreme court justices are elected for six-year terms by nonpartisan elections. Nominations are accepted for governorship.

At its inception, the Nevada Court of Appeals was composed of three judges. They were selected by the governor and nominated by a judicial selection committee. The initial term of these judges is two years. If they want to continue serving, they must run for re-election. The second term of the first judge is over. Judges are elected after that. The term of a full court member is six years.

The United States District Court for the District of Nevada is the federal district court for Nevada. These courts can appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit.

The Nevada Supreme Court, which has seven judgeships, is the state's court-of-last resort.

Nevada Court of Appeals was established by a constitutional amendment legislatively referred that was approved by voters at the general election of November 4, 2014. The January 1st 2015 date for the new court was chosen.

District courts are the general courts of jurisdiction. They are the trial courts of general jurisdiction and can hear appeals from municipal and justice courts.

About Nevada

Because of its importance to history and economy, Nevada is known as the "Silver State". It is also known by the name "Battle Born State", which became a state during the Civil War, "Sagebrush State", after the native plant with the same name, and "Sage-hen State". Its name means "snowy" (in Spanish) and refers to Nevada's small overlaps with the Sierra Nevada mountain range. However, most of Nevada is deserted and semi-arid, including much of the Great Basin. The Mojave Desert covers areas south of the Great Basin, while Lake Tahoe is on the western edge. Around 86% of the state is managed by the U.S. Federal Government, which includes civilian and military jurisdictions.
