In the Philippines, the regular courts engaged in the administration of justice are organized into four (4) levels. At the highest level is the Supreme Court; and in it are lower courts - those at the three other levels - that judicial power is vested. They are collectively known as the Judiciary. As thus organized, they comprise what is referred to as the Integrated Judicial System.
