What is a superior court clerk? Superior court clerks have been around since the inception of the State of Georgia. “Clerk of Court” is one of four elected county offices created by the Georgia Constitution. Each of Georgia’s 159 counties has one. Clerks are the official record keepers of the county—they receive and maintain criminal and civil court filings and serve as custodian of county land and property records.

Collectively, we are Superior Court Clerks of Georgia. But there are several organizations through which clerks conduct business as a group and in which clerks participate as leaders and members. Find out more about each one below.
