“Jurisdiction” means a tribunal taken as a public service of the State, the function of which is to judge the disputes referred to it.

The jurisdictions which judge cases in appeal   and the jurisdiction which hears appeals in cassation , respectively take the name of “Courts” ( Court of Appeal , Court of Cassation ). Again as an exception to the above rule, the jurisdiction which judges individual labor disputes is called “Conseil” (Conseil de Prud’hommes).

The term “jurisdiction” extends to “arbitral jurisdictions” and special jurisdictions such as the Labor Council or the Commercial Court .

The jurisdiction of a court is also the territorial extent of its jurisdiction

The jurisdiction settles disputes by rendering judicial decisions .
