Judicial Council/Administrative Office of the Courts Gear up to Celebrate 40th Anniversary

What did Georgia’s judiciary look like 40 years ago? How many members were there on the Judicial Council? Who was the first Director of the Administrative Office of the Courts? What was the initial appropriation for the Judicial Council in 1973?
 
You won’t have to wait long to find out.  During the months of May and June, the Administrative Office of the Courts will be answering those questions and taking a look at the future of the state’s judiciary.

Forty Years in Forty Days
altTo help celebrate the past 40 years, staff from the AOC is gathering a wide-range of information from 1973 through today.   Be prepared to learn more than you ever thought you would know about judicial administration in the state: a retrospective on technology trends in courts, budgets -- large and small, an exhaustive review of judgeships to name just a few topics. 
 
On January 10, the Judicial Council was presented with a new logo created to commemorate the 40th anniversary.   Both houses of the Georgia General Assembly recently commended the Judicial Council/Administrative Office of the Courts for their 40-year commitment to the efficient and fair administration of justice in Georgia's courts.  HR 143 and SR 165 recognize 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.”
