The Paris Hall of Justice (Palais de Justice de Paris) is located in the Île de la Cité in central Paris, France.

It is built on the location of the former royal palace of Saint Louis, from which the Sainte Chapelle still remains.

It houses various courts:

* the Paris court of large claims;
* the Paris correctional court;
* the Paris Court of Appeal;
* the French Cour de cassation (highest jurisdiction in the French judicial order).

It also houses the Conciergerie, a former prison which is now a museum. The Conciergerie is notable in part because Marie Antoinette was imprisoned there before being executed on the guillotine.
