|The Isle of Man Court System|
Although English Law does not extend to the Isle of Man, the Manx legal system is based on the principles of English Common Law.
Lawyers in the Isle of Man are known as Advocates, and they combine the roles of solicitors and barristers in England.
There are two High Court judges on the Isle of Man known as Deemsters. They have jurisdiction over all the criminal and civil matters that in England would fall under the High Court, Crown Court or County Court respectively.
The Isle of Man has its own Lay Magistrates, similar to their English counterparts, as well as two Stipendiary Magistrates (the High Bailiff and Deputy High Bailiff) who also act as coroners in inquests and preside over the Licensing Court.
