The Peoples Courts
They are the courts established in capitals or prefectures in the provincial level.
The scope of jurisdiction by an intermediate people's court covers cases of first instance assigned by laws and decrees, cases of first instance transferred from the basic people's courts, and appealed and protested cases from the lower court. The basic courts, as the lowest level, are normally located at the county, municipal districts and autonomous counties. A basic people's court may set up a number of people's tribunal according to the conditions of the locality, population and cases involved.

A people's tribunal is a component of the basic people's court, and its judgments and orders are considered as judgments and orders of the basic people's court with the same legal effects. In practice, a tribunal of this nature is often set up in big town or townships where there is a concentrated population. As defined in the Organic Law, the basic people's court adjudicates all criminal and civil cases of the first instance except where the law provides otherwise. Besides trying cases, a basic people's court is also responsible for settling civil disputes, handling minor criminal cases that do not require formal handling, and directing the work of the people's mediation committees.
People’s Courts and Legal Philosophy
The special courts include military courts, railway courts and maritime courts. The military court that is established within the PLA is in charge of hearing criminal cases involving servicemen. This is a relatively closed system. The railway and transport court deals with criminal cases and economic disputes relating to railways and transportation.
These courts have jurisdiction over maritime cases and maritime trade cases of the first instance, including any other disputes of this category taking place between Chinese and foreign citizens, organizations, and enterprises.
The Third Reich has been called a dual state, since the normal judicial system coexisted with the arbitrary power of Hitler and the police. Yet, like most areas of public life after the Nazi rise to power in , the German system of justice underwent "coordination" alignment with Nazi goals. All professional associations involved with the administration of justice were merged into the National Socialist League of German Jurists. In April , Hitler passed one of the earliest antisemitic laws , purging Jewish and also Socialist judges, lawyers, and other court officers from their professions.

Further, the Academy of German Law and Nazi legal theorists, such as Carl Schmitt, advocated the nazification of German law, cleansing it of "Jewish influence. Hitler determined to increase the political reliability of the courts. In he established special courts throughout Germany to try politically sensitive cases.
Dissatisfied with the 'not guilty' verdicts rendered by the Supreme Court Reichsgericht in the Reichstag Fire Trial, Hitler ordered the creation of the People's Court Volksgerichtshof in Berlin in to try treason and other important "political cases.
Rethinking Law, Judging, and Punishment
After the war, prominent Nazi jurists like Curt Rothenberger, Franz Schlegelberger, and Josef Altstoetter were tried in the Jurists' Trial of the Subsequent Nuremberg Proceedings on charges of "judicial murder" and other atrocities. This case is unusual in that the defendants are charged with crimes committed in the name of the law. These men, together with their deceased or fugitive colleagues, were the embodiment of what passed for justice in the Third Reich.
