The district court of Helmstedt is one of nine district courts in the regional court district of Braunschweig. It is based in Helmstedt .

The court has a total of 67 employees, including nine judges and ten senior judicial officers. The judicial district of the Helmstedt District Court covers the area of the Helmstedt district . The Helmstedt District Court thus has around 96,000 court residents . The higher-ranking court is the Braunschweig Regional Court .


Through the judicial reform of the German Empire in 1877, the then existing district court was connected to the Helmstedt District Court. As a result of the regional reform in the 1970s, the judicial district of the Helmstedt District Court was gradually expanded: On July 1, 1973, the Schöningen District Court was dissolved and its district was added to the Helmstedt District Court. In the following year the same thing happened with the Königslutter district court. The last expansion of the judicial district took place on January 1, 1983, when the Helmstedt District Court also took over responsibility for the municipality of Lehrer , which had previously belonged to the district of the Braunschweig District Court.
