Your translation is correct (more correct, I might say).
Explanation:
Note that the word Tribunal relates to levels (Primera Instancia) and Sala to jurisdiction.
In any case, Alcaraz Varó:
Sala: courtroom, room, hall, chamber; bench, court, tribunal, division of a court (this would be determined by the English and legal procedures used).

Explanation:
From Dictionary of Law & Business byThomas West: Sala = panel (of judges)/division (of a court). Also Sala Constitucional = Constitutional Chamber. Also Sala de Audiencias del Juzgado = Courtroom. Sala de lo civil = Civil division. Sala de lo penal = Criminal Division. Sala de Juzgado = Courtroom. Hope it helps.
