From the Director

Dear Courts Journal Readers,
Welcome to the new Georgia Courts Journal. Over the past few years, the AOC has increasingly relied on the use of E-mail for distributing many of our trusted communications pieces to you.  altThis digital edition marks the first of our publications to move away from a printed format and look.  I hope you will enjoy the easily-navigable site.
Much of the content remains the same: articles highlighting the work of the judges, courts, court administrators, clerks, and others in the state; reports on judicial happenings — conferences, commissions, Judicial Council meetings; People and Places; Directory Corrections; etc.
Some new features include submitted articles from judges, Quick Takes (a quick look at events and happenings), and a poll that will change with each issue.  Each issue will be archived and can be accessed once a new edition is published under the “Archives” tab at the top of the site.
Your feedback is vital to the success of the Georgia Courts Journal.  Call 404-656-5171 or E-mail to let us know what you think about our new Courts Journal or to submit ideas or articles for inclusion in a future issue.

Marla S. Moore
Director, Administrative Office of the Courts
