The Arizona Constitution states, "The supreme court shall have administrative supervision over all the courts of the state."
The supreme court adopts policies and procedures to guide municipal, justice of the peace, superior court and appellate courts throughout Arizona in conducting their administrative functions in a fair, efficient and fiscally responsible way. The Arizona Constitution also states, "The supreme court shall appoint an administrative director and staff to serve at its pleasure to assist the chief justice in discharging his/her administrative duties."
The Administrative Directives are policies and procedures for the administration of all Arizona courts as delegated to the administrative director by the supreme court.
