The structure of the judicial hierarchy appears from the diagram showing the structure of courts in Lesotho. At the base lie the Central and Local Courts administering customary law. Above them stand the High Court, the Court of Appeal and the Privy Council. In an intermediate position are the subordinate courts and the Judicial Commissioners' courts.
