Michigan Court of Chancery
The Court of Chancery was the court with jurisdiction in cases of equity in the state of Michigan between 1836 and 1847, presided over by a Chancellor. In certain cases, appeal could be made to the Michigan Supreme Court.
The law creating the Court of Chancery took effect July 4, 1836 and it was abolished on March 1, 1847, with its jurisdiction given to the circuit courts. During this time, only two men served as Chancellor. The Chancellor was an ex officio member of the Board of Regents of the University of Michigan.
