Justice of the peace in connection with the New York State justice system:
ccc
New York is one of about 30 states that still rely on these kinds of local judges, descendants of the justices who kept the peace in Colonial days, when lawyers were scarce.
This is not the first time the justice courts have come under scrutiny. “Probably the most unsatisfactory feature of the administration of criminal law remaining in the state today is the obsolete and antiquated institution known as the justice of the peace,” another state commission concluded.

Simple men, and their simple wisdom, are the whole idea behind the justice courts. A 13th-century English institution, the justice of the peace was imported to the colonies in the 1600’s along with a fundamental notion: that laymen could settle small-bore cases with practical solutions grounded in local custom or common sense.

Jurisdiction:

7. Marriages and Oaths
The Domestic Relations Law (“DRL”) authorizes Town and Village Justices to solemnize marriages. This solemnization authority extends statewide for all Town and Village Justices. Town and Village Justices also may administer oaths anywhere in the county in which they are selected.

The Village Justice, as an elected village officer, must reside within the village unless the village has a population of less than 3,000 and adopts a resolution providing that the justice may reside anywhere within the county in which the village is located. If the village allows its justice to reside outside the village, the individual must, nonetheless, hold court in the village and only village residents are entitled to vote for his/her election.67
Education and Training Requirements
All newly elected and appointed Town and Village Justices are encouraged to participate in initial education and training. Justices who are not admitted to practice law in New York State are required to partake in such training. The actual and necessary expenses incurred by a justice or justice-elect in obtaining this education and training are chargeable against the municipality for which the justice is selected. The specific requirements of the training program depend on whether the justice is admitted to practice law.
