Welcome! From our president:

On behalf of the Council of State Court Judges, I would like to welcome you to the Council's Internet Website. This is a very exciting time for the Georgia Judicial System as the state advances in accountability courts such as DUI Courts, technology and communication!
 
Our Council, and its membership of judges, is proud to be a part of this new age in court development. We hope that by providing a website on our class of court in Georgia, the public will become more educated in the judicial process as well as more familiar with the way the justice system affects their community and daily lives.
 
Please take the time to evaluate our website for all that it has to offer. Also, feel free to contact our Council at our headquarters in Atlanta for any further information that you may need regarding the State Court bench in Georgia. Our staff is able to communicate with various state agencies and judicial offices to provide service on a variety of issues.
 
As you leave this site, remember that the judges of the State Court Bench in Georgia are representatives of not only the laws they adjudicate, but further, they are representatives of the counties in which they serve. Our membership prides itself on its ability to be accessible to the public and strives to maintain, and further build a strong presence in each county in the state. We are in essence a people's court serving every citizen of Georgia.Thank you for visiting the website of the Council of State Court Judges.

The Council
 
The Council of State Court Judges was created legislatively (OCGA § 15-7-26) to effectuate the constitutional and statutory responsibilities conferred upon it by law and to further the improvement of the State Courts, the quality and expertise of the judges thereof, and the administration of justice. The Council consists of 122 active judges, who serve in 70 counties, and a number of Senior and Judges Emeritus.

Council policies are set by its Executive Committee, while the Council has standing committees for such issues as strategic planning, educational programming, technology/computers, uniform rules, and new judge mentoring among others. Designated State Court judges serve on judicial branch agencies, such as the Georgia Courts Automation Commission, the Institute for Continuing Judicial Education, and the Georgia Commission on Interpreters among others.

The Council also sponsors a "Judge for the Week" program during the legislative session. The Judges attend committee meetings and make themselves available to answers posed by legislators and to express concerns and comments to legislators about bills being considered.

Each year the Council develops a Strategic Business Plan to further its Mission to further the improvement of State Courts, the quality and expertise of its judges, to maintain the impartiality of the judiciary and to ensure the fair, efficient administration of justice. The four Strategic Objectives of the Council are to
1) Support the State Courts;
2) Facilitate Relationships within the Judicial Branch;
3) Foster Relationships with other branches of Government; and
4) Inform and interact with the public.
