Judicial Council and AOC Celebrate 40 Years of Service

Atlanta, GA — During the months of May and June, the Judicial Council and Administrative Office of the Courts will celebrate 40 years of providing support services to the courts of Georgia.   The members of the first Judicial Council were sworn in on May 4, 1973, and the Administrative Office of the Courts began its work on July 1, 1973.

            The two-month retrospective posted to Facebook and Twitter will cover the functions and history of the Judicial Council and types of services provided by the Administrative Office of the Courts as well as what is in store for the future for the two judicial entities.

During the 2013 Session of the General Assembly, HR 143 and SR 165 recognized that “during the past four decades, the Judicial Council and the Administrative Office of the Courts have pursued their mission to ensure consistency in the statewide court system, to improve court operations, and to enhance communication among Georgia's judiciary.”
