APPELLATE COURTS

Following jury trials in Superior Court in which a conviction is obtained, and in limited other circumstances, matters can be appealed from Superior Court to one of Georgia's two appellate courts. The Court of Appeals of Georgia handles the bulk of these appeals while the Supreme Court of Georgia takes direct appeals in death penalty cases and when the appeal concerns a challenge the constitutionality of a criminal statute. The Supreme Court of Georgia may also take cases on review from the Court of Appeals by issuing a writ of certiorari in the case. The District Attorney's Office prepares legal briefs for and when necessary, conducts oral arguments, in these two courts on behalf of the State in most cases. The Attorney General represents the State in all appeals involving capital felonies.
