The Justice Building is a place in each district where official business is conducted and is presumably the seat of the regional government. Children go to the Justice Building to sign up for tesserae. It is also where tributes are taken once they have been reaped for the Hunger Games. The tributes bid farewell to their loved ones before being taken to the Capitol. And in the Victory Tour, the victor speaks to the District from the Justice Building. Also, this is where Katniss Everdeen received a medal when her father died in a mine explosion. Katniss says the Justice Building 'is full of sadness'. In the District 11 Justice Building, Haymitch takes Katniss and Peeta Mellark to the roofttop immediately after an old man is shot for whistling Katniss and Rue's 4-note mockingjay tune, which meant safety in the arena. This was after their speech to Rue and Thresh's families during the 74th Victory Tour.
The District 13 Justice Building is described as being "smoldering remains".
- In the film it is called 'The Hall of Justice' rather than 'The Justice Building'.
- Each district has a Justice Building apart from District 13 as their one was destroyed when the district was bombed.
