Mayor's and City of London Courts

A county court in the City of London, which is the successor to courts pre-dating the County Courts Act of 1846, which introduced the modern system of county courts. Under the Courts Act of 1971, it was abolished, and the City of London was made a county court district, retaining the name of its predecessor. It remains the only county court not to contain 'county' in its title.
