First Judicial Circuit
The Indiana Constitution directed the General Assembly to divide the State into judicial circuits, and provided that a Circuit Court would be established in each circuit. Presently, the boundaries of 90 Indiana Circuits are co-extensive with the boundaries of a particular Indiana county. There are two less populated counties which share a circuit. The boundaries of Indiana's First Judicial Circuit are the same as the boundaries of Vanderburgh County. The First Judicial Circuit Court is commonly known as the Vanderburgh Circuit Court.
