The judicial system in the Netherlands
The Netherlands is divided into 19 legal districts, each with its own court. Each district court has  a maximum of five sectors, which always include the administrative law, civil law, criminal law and sub-district law sector.

Appeals against judgements passed by the district court in civil and criminal law cases can be lodged at the competent Court of Appeal (there are five Courts of Appeal in total); appeals against administrative law judgements at the competent specialised administrative law tribunal – the Administrative Jurisdiction Division of the Council of State, the Central Appeals Tribunal or the Trade and Industry Appeals Tribunal, also known as Administrative High Court for Trade and Industry, depending on the type of case. Appeals in cassation in civil, criminal and tax law cases are lodged at the Supreme Court of the Netherlands, the  highest court in civil. criminal and tax matters.So we have District Courts (19), with upto 5 sectors
