Judicial Council of Georgia to Meet on February 10, 2023, and Celebrates its 50th Anniversary
Atlanta, GA — The Judicial Council of Georgia will meet for a General Session via virtual teleconference on Friday, February 10, 2023, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. A livestream will be provided on the Judicial Council of Georgia’s YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/judicialcouncilofgeorgia.
The Council will hear reports from several committees, including Budget, Legislation, Judicial Emergency Preparedness, and ARPA Funding. In addition, reports will be delivered by each class of court.
2023 marks the 50th year from the creation of the Judicial Council/Administrative Office of the Courts by the legislature and signed into law by then Governor Carter in 1973. Judicial Council Fellow and retired Judge Tain Kell will make a short presentation to announce the anniversary which we will use as a yearlong opportunity to celebrate and educate the legal community and the public about the Judicial Council/AOC. We have created an archive of all 50 annual reports. We are planning a video series and some presentations at various events throughout the year as well as a Habitat for Humanity service event.
The 28-member Judicial Council of Georgia meets several times a year to act on policy and administrative matters affecting the judiciary. Judges from Georgia’s appellate and trial courts at all levels are represented on the Judicial Council, as well as a representative from the State Bar of Georgia.
