Laugharne Corporation was originally the Municipal Authority controlling the Township of Laugharne. It has ceased to be a Municipal Authority and is now a registered charity administering lands and property owned by the Corporation. The Corporation is comprised of a number of Burgesses or Freemen. The Corporation's business is conducted at Court Leet and Court Baron meetings, which are held every fortnight in the Town Hall
The Corporation is headed by a Portreeve, Aldermen (who are former Portreeves) and the Grand Jury of burgesses chosen annually and led by its Foreman. The officials of the Court comprise the Clerk or Recorder, the Deputy Recorder and the Bailiff. Four Petty Constables are chosen by lot from the members of the Grand Jury and the Corporation's rents are collected by two Common Attorneys who are also chosen from the Grand Jury.
