As specified in Chapter three of the Turkish Constitution regulating the “Judiciary”; 

High Courts are:

the Constitutional Court,

the Court of Jurisdictional Disputes   

 

The Court of Jurisdictional Disputes, one of the high courts exercising the judicial power within the limits of their duty and jurisdiction described in the Constitution, is an independent high court empowered by virtue of Article 158 of the Constitution (1961 Constitution, Art. 142) to deliver final judgments in disputes between civil, criminal and administrative courts concerning their jurisdiction and decisions.

The Court of Jurisdictional Disputes ensures the exercise of the individuals’ suspended right to legal remedies by resolving the disputes related to jurisdiction, which arise from the principle of judicial separation, and eliminates the legal obstacles before the exercise of the right by resolving the disputes related to judgments. It is also a specially authorised supreme court which can revoke the judgments of the Court of Cassation and the Council of State, which are among the other supreme courts sharing the judicial power, if necessary and can deliver a judgment in their place.
