2010 Georgia Code
TITLE 15 - COURTS
CHAPTER 14 - COURT REPORTERS
ARTICLE 2 - TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION
§ 15-14-21 - Purpose
It is declared by the General Assembly that the practice of court reporting carries important responsibilities in connection with the administration of justice, both in and out of the courts; that court reporters are officers of the courts; and that the right to define and regulate the practice of court reporting belongs naturally and logically to the judicial branch of the state government. Therefore, in recognition of these principles, the purpose of this article is to act in aid of the judiciary so as to ensure minimum proficiency in the practice of court reporting by recognizing and conferring jurisdiction upon the Judicial Council of Georgia to define and regulate the practice of court reporting.
