Background on the Court of Appeals, Division One

The Arizona Legislature established the Arizona Court of Appeals in 1964. The Court serves as an intermediate appellate court with two divisions: Division One, based in Phoenix, and Division Two, based in Tucson. Division One started with three judges and, over time, expanded with the state’s population to its current complement of 16 judges.

Division One resolves appeals from the Superior Court in eight of Arizona’s 15 counties: Apache, Coconino, La Paz, Navajo, Maricopa, Mohave, Yavapai and Yuma. Additionally, the Court reviews decisions made by the Industrial Commission, the Corporation Commission, Department of Economic Security and other state commissions and boards.

The work performed at the Court is of great importance and impacts many lives. Our culture embodies this understanding, and employees work diligently with the utmost respect for the responsibility of supporting judges in deciding cases.

All departments of the agency have functions that overlap and support each other, creating an environment of collaboration. The Court’s judges and employees are dedicated to public service and take great pride in producing quality work.

All judges and employees must comply with the Arizona Supreme Court’s codes of conduct, which includes a duty to maintain the impartiality of the court.

Court employees are required to complete continuing education each year, and they do so through a variety of educational opportunities provided by the court and others in the judicial branch.
