Arizona Judicial Branch


Welcome to the Arizona Court Rules Forum, a website sponsored by the Arizona Supreme Court and the Administrative Office of the Courts. This website allows you to electronically file and monitor your own court rule petitions and comments. In addition, the Court Rules Forum provides visitors with a single point of access to all aspects of court rulemaking in Arizona: from a database of the existing rules of court to recent amendments of those rules, pending rule petitions and comments, recent court actions on rules, and an annual schedule of the Court’s consideration of rules. It also provides user-friendly instructions for using this website, located in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). 

The Arizona Supreme Court’s Strategic Agenda Advancing Justice Together: Courts & Communities reflects our commitment to continuously improving Arizona’s justice system and revising rules to be clear and understandable.  We hope you will participate in reviewing and commenting on Arizona’s court rules through the Court Rules Forum.
