The local courts in Nilkawt consist of the lower Courts of Courtesy and Courting. Both the Court of Courtesy and the Court of Courting are based in the Low Kawt region of Nilkawt, in the valley at the base of the High Kawt Mountain of Documentation.
The Low Kawt courts are also administrative and judicial channels through which the Nilkawtians deal with all the basic legal issues relating to suitable social behaviour in Nilkawt. Each day, the judges of the Court of Courtesy and the Court of Courting travel on well-planned circuits, dealing with matters as locally as possible, before returning to their base in the evenings.
The judges of the Court of Courtesy travel in a clockwise direction. The judges of the Court of Courting travel in the counterclockwise direction.
Unlike the judges of the Court of Courtesy, who travel predictably in a perfect circle, the judges of the Court of Courting travel in a circuitous, zigzag pattern to wherever they and the defendants are meant to be accountable.
To ensure the judges of the local Low Kawt courts are not mistaken for the judges of the Hike Kawt Court of the Caught, the Low Kawt circuit judges are known as Just Kisses of the Peace. They are therefore able to resolve all types of disputes quickly, simply and cheaply.
