Land District Law and Legal Definition

Land district is an administrative division within a state where the land office of the state will be located. In a land office there will be a register of the land office and a receiver of public money for the disposition of public lands. Land district is created by federal authority.

Pursuant to 43 USCS § 127, the President is authorized to change and re-establish the boundaries of land-districts whenever, in his opinion, the public interests will be subserved thereby, without authority to increase the number of land-offices or land-districts.
