Business Courts in the United States and Around the World

Creating Business Courts

In general, the creation of a business court consists of two steps: (1) the removal of cases from general dockets to the business court docket and, (2) the appointment of judges to the business court. The addition of business court judges usually requires no extra expense to the state or jurisdiction because such judges are reassigned to the business court from other courts and no new judges are hired. Thus, no new funds are needed. Additionally, most jurisdictions reallocate existing appropriated funds from their existing court to the business court. Global business lawyers have lauded the advancements business courts have made in expediting complex business litigation.

  1. The American Bar Association's Subcommittee on Business Courts' webpage has an extensive body of links, articles and reports on business and commercial courts, both national and international. The U. of Maryland School of Law's Journal of Business and Technology has a Business Court resource page which similarly has a vast body of useful information on the subject.
