1.0 Preamble.
The purpose of these standards and policies is to assign and regulate administrative authority in a complex, multi-tiered court system. The Constitution now vests in a Chief Administrator of the Courts, on behalf of the Chief Judge, responsibility for supervising the administration and operation of our courts. Heretofore this has been the constitutional responsibility of the Appellate Divisions of the Supreme Court and the Administrative Board of the Judicial Conference. These standards and policies reflect the judgment of the Chief Judge and of the Court of Appeals that sound management of our court system requires that the Appellate Divisions, through their presiding justices, have a significant consultative role in management decisions which affect the trial courts in each of the diverse areas of our State. This participation of the Appellate Divisions in court administration is consistent with our judicial tradition and is important to the intelligent and effective exercise of the Chief Administrator's constitutional functions and responsibilities.
Paramount, however, is the constitutional mandate for a unified administration of the courts, within the framework of which the consultative role of the Appellate Divisions may appropriately function. The Chief Administrator should also consult with the trial judges, the bar, and the public, either directly or through deputies, local administrative judges, and advisory committees.
