It's part of the High Courts of Justice, usually dealing with "anything else". Business and money cases are dealt with by the Chancery Division, and family and divorce cases are dealt with by the Family Division. The Queen's Bench Division hears cases related to contracts, damages and injuries. It also oversees the lower courts and the government.

The Queen's Bench Division hears appeals from Magistrates and Crown Courts. If the case is a criminal conviction, an appeal goes straight to the Supreme Court. If the case is a lawsuit, the appeal goes to the Civil Division of the Court of Appeal (or occassionally, can be 'leapfrogged' straight to the Supreme Court).

Who is considered as fountain of justice in England?

The monarch is considered the fountain of justice. Historically the monarch would sit and hear appeals for justice in a court known as "The Court of the King Before the King Himself". Until Magna Carta, in 1215, the court sat where ever the monarch happened to be. It subsequently sat at Westminster Hall in London. This system evolved into The Court of King's Bench (or Court of Queen's Bench during the reign of a Queen) which could hear cases without the monarchs presence. This system was abolished in 1875 with the establishment of the High Court of Justice and the Queen's Bench Division of that court. .

What is the court structure of UK?

There are three different systems in the UK - I will use the England and Wales system. Northern Ireland and Scotland are entirely sepeate, apart from with the Supreme Court.Cases are split between Criminal Cases (convictions) and Civil Cases (lawsuits). Minor criminal cases are dealt with by a Magistrates' Court. This is presided over by part-time magistrates under the supervision of a professional lawyer, and is limited into what sentances it can give. Serious criminal cases, and appeals from the Magistrates' Court, go to a Crown Court, which usually features a jury, as well as a professional judge (who wears a full wig and robes outfit). Appeals from a Crown Court go to the Criminal Division of the Court of Appeal, in London.Civil Cases usually begin at a Magistrates' Court or a County Court. County Courts are as common as Crown Courts and they often share buildings. Appeals from a County Court go to the High Courts of Justice, or to the Civil Division of the Court of Appeal.The High Courts of Justice, in London, is divided into three divisions. The Chancery Division hears cases concerning businesses and money - most appeals from County Courts. The Family Division hears cases related to divorce, children and medical treatment, which usually come from a Magistrates' Court. The Queen's Bench Division (or King's, if the monarch is male) deals with cases involving damages, bankruptcy and possession, as well as presiding over lower courts. Appeals from these courts go to the Civil Division of the Court of Appeal (unless the Supreme Court decides to hear them), except for criminal cases at the Queen's Bench which go straight to the Supreme Court.The Court of Appeal, which shares buildings with the High Courts of Justice (together known as the Royal Courts of Justice building, or the Law Courts) is divided into two divisions, the Criminal Division and the Civil Division. Appeals from here go to the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom. Cases at the Supreme Court cannot be appealed, although they can ask the European Court in Strasbourg for assistance.
