The UDC has established a law court system with originating jurisdiction in all matters, including civil claims and criminal matters. Additionally, the tribunals will have declaratory powers to consider the legality or constitutionality of matters which affect human rights in general. As the UDC is a global, distributed polity, its courts claim jurisdiction over any subject matter in any territory of the globe.

The UDC, being situate on an unincorporated territory of the United States, enjoys the ability access recirprocal court order arrangements with U.S. states. however, it the UDC courts are entirely separate from and unaffected by the United States federal courts, or U.S. federal laws in general, unless the UDC itself has incorporated such laws into its own law.
