CACJ Model Courts

The goal of Georgia’s Accountability Court Model Court Program, supported by the Council of Accountability Court Judges (CACJ), is to recognize the great work of accountability courts across the state, as well as identify strong programs that may serve as mentors for other courts.

To request technical assistance, complete the form and please include details pertaining to questions or areas of need.

Technical assistance may include but is not limited to: information and resource sharing, policy and material development, and observations and site visits. 

CACJ staff will connect you with a model court in your area.

Programs identified as Model Courts are those that have met and exceeded adherence to Georgia’s Standards as dictated by strong performance on certification and peer review processes. Other metrics for consideration include program age, judge and coordinator tenure, treatment fidelity, and more.
