About the JC/AOC

The Administrative Office of the Courts was established in 1973, along with the Judicial Council of Georgia, to provide support services to the courts of Georgia.

The agency oversees the annual workload assessment study for the superior courts, sponsors court technology and automation efforts, coordinates activities of court councils, and produces publications such as the Georgia Courts Journal and the annual Georgia Courts Directory. In addition the AOC serves as the fiscal officer for a variety of judicial branch commissions and councils.

As an administrative arm of the Supreme Court of Georgia, the AOC operates under the guidance of the Judicial Council, a policy-making body chaired by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia.  Membership of the Judicial Council consists of twenty-six judges representing the appellate and trials courts of the state. The Council meets at least three times a year to consider judgeships, budgetary matters, and other judicial branch programs.

The JC/AOC is led by Ms. Cynthia H. Clanton, Interim Director.
