مَجلس القَضاء
Explanation:
Pronounced: MAJLIS AL-QADHA’

Courts and tribunals: AL-MAHAKIM WA MAJALIS AL-QADHA’.

Both courts and tribunals are bodies that adjudicate in legal matters. Why one is called court and the other tribunal varies from case to case, but the bottom line is that the text you have seems intent upon making a distinction, if ever so slight. MAJLIS AL-QADHA’ seems the closest to the expression “court or seat of justice,” which is one of the definitions given by the American Heritage Dictionary. MAJLIS is a convenient term because it doubles as a “seat” and a “council.” That is why I prefer MAJLIS to KURSIYY. The latter is suggested by Al-Mawrid. As always, use your judgment.

"tribunal" = Mahakama or korssi elqadaa


Explanation:
In this context, when translated into arabic tribunals = courts which will be very superfluous.

Suggestion: you may want to omit it in the arabic translation since it will be redundunt.

محكمة شعبية


Explanation:
Tribunal: لا تخلو هذه الكلمة من الغموض ولا يوجد لها في القانون الإنجليزي معنى واضح. وفي القانون الروماني هي منصة القضاء المعدة القاضي البلدي ، اي praetor
وفي هذا السياق وفي الممارسات القضائية المعاصرة هي المحاكم الشعبية وقد تتكون من قاض واحد أو أثنين أو ثلاثة قضاة ولا يكونون من القضاء الجالس بل يختارون من ذوي الخبرة
