The Genesee County Judicial Council was formed in 1994, as an outgrowth of the Justice Project of the Michigan Supreme Court and the Courts in the 21st Century Project of the Michigan Legislature.
The mission of the Judicial Council is to enhance the administration of justice to citizens of Genesee County. This is accomplished by developing methods to share information of common concern and review information from agencies that do business with the Courts.
The council consists of sixteen members and is currently chaired by the Chief Judge of the 67th District Court. Other members include the Chief Judge and Chief Judge Pro-Tem of the Circuit Court, Chief Judge and Chief Judge Pro-Tem of the 68th District Court and Chief Judge and Chief Judge Pro-Tem of the 67th District Courts, Chief Judge and Chief Judge Pro-Tem of the Probate Court, and the respective court administrators. Representatives of the County Clerk, Genesee County Bar Association, Prosecutor Office and Sheriff's Office are non-voting members of this assembly. A delegation from the State Court Administrative Office frequently attends meetings. Meetings are held on the first Monday of each month except July.
