The personal rooms of a judge where he or she may hear matters in private.
Definition from Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary
A fancy word for a judge's office. It's usually close to the courtroom so that the judge can enter the court from behind the bench and not encounter people on the way. Trial court judges often schedule pretrial settlement conferences and other informal or sensitive meetings in chambers.
