Exchequer Chamber

This court has no original jurisdiction, but is merely a court of appeal, to correct the errors of other jurisdictions. It consists of the lord chancellor, the lord treasurer, and the judges of the king's bench and common pleas. Into the exchequer chamber are adjourned such causes as the judges find to be of great weight and difficulty, before any judgment is given on them in the court; and here are decided the cases which are referred to have the opinions of all the judges on them.
