This chapter examines in detail the various courts or assemblies where the business of governing the city was undertaken. The courts ranged from meetings of householders in the twenty-four wards, to the Folkmoot assembly of all citizens and the court of Husting where property disputes were heard. The development of the work of the Court of Aldermen and the Court of Common Council as the City's main deliberative (and representative) assemblies is also analysed.
