Milian, the show's longest-reigning arbiter, handles small claims disputes in a simulated courtroom set. The People's Court is the first court show to use binding arbitration, introducing the format into the genre in 1981. The system has been duplicated by most of the show's successors in the judicial genre. Moreover, The People's Court is the first popular, long-running reality in the judicial genre. It was preceded only by a few short-lived realities in the genre; these short-lived predecessors were only loosely related to judicial proceedings, except for one: Parole took footage from real-life courtrooms holding legal proceedings. Prior to The People's Court, the vast majority of TV courtroom shows used actors, and recreated or fictional cases. Among examples of these types of court shows include Famous Jury Trials and Your Witness. The People's Court has had two contrasting lives. The show's first life was presided over solely by former Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Joseph Wapner. His tenure lasted from the show's debut on September 14, 1981, until May 21, 1993, when the show was cancelled due to low ratings. This left the show with a total of 2,484 ½-hour episodes and 12 seasons. The show was taped in Los Angeles during its first life. After being cancelled, reruns aired until September 9, 1994.

Crown Court is an afternoon television courtroom drama produced by Granada Television for the ITV network that ran from 1972, when the Crown Court system replaced Assize courts and Quarter sessions in the legal system of England and Wales, to 1984. A court case in the crown court of the fictional town of Fulchester would typically be played out over three afternoons in half-hour episodes and the most frequent format was for the prosecution case to be presented in the first two episodes and the defence in the third, although there were some later, brief variations. Although those involved in the case were actors, the jury was made up of members of the general public from the immediate Granada Television franchise area taken from the electoral register and eligible for real jury service: it was this jury alone which decided the verdict. Indeed, production publicity of the time stated that, for many of the scripts, two endings were written and rehearsed to cope with the jury's independent decision which was delivered for the first time, as in a real court case, when the foreman was asked by the actor playing the judge, while the programme's recording progressed. However, the course of some cases would lead the jury being directed to return "not guilty" verdicts.

Street Court is a nontraditional court show syndicated for one season by Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina-based Litton Entertainment and hosted by Michael Mazzariello, also referred to as Judge Mazz. Unlike other courtroom shows, Street Court travels across the United States and holds court at the scene of the dispute. Judge Mazz, a New York resident, is characterized by a strong Brooklyn accent and introduced the term "huckalero". Judge Mazz frequently uses it to describe alleged deception on the part of defendants, though he never explained on-air what huckalero means or where it originated. Judge Mazz ends every case with the quote, "That's my ruling, that's it." Judge Mazzariello's online biography cited a childhood and experience in Brooklyn as Assistant District Attorney, his founding of the nonprofit East New York Legal Services, and his role as Chief Prosecutor for the New York City Board of Education during the Giuliani administration. The City University of New York School of Law website cites him as an alum. Street Court was cleared in 89% of its television markets in the single season produced, and appeared to be a hit. The show appeared to be popular in larger markets and especially so in New York, where WPIX aired the show in mid-afternoon. Nevertheless, Litton choose not to renew Street Court after just one season and replaced the series in most of the markets with Judge Karen's Court, a new standard court room series presided over by Karen Mills-Francis, whose Judge Karen was canceled after one season.
