::: Introduction & Jurisdiction

Introduction
The court was formerly Taipei District Court, Hsinchu Branch during the Japanese occupation of Taiwan. The office was located at 136, Chungcheng Road, Hsinchu City, where the court is now. In 1938, it was restructured as Hsinchu District Court, which enjoys the same jurisdiction as before. With the industrial and commercial development and the growing populations in the regions of Taoyuan and Miaoli, Taiwan Taoyuan and Miaoli District Courts were established in June, 1973 and in April, 1997 respectively for the convenience of the public.
