An Interview with Georgia Supreme Court Chief Justice George Carley

The 29th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia, George H. Carley, agreed to sit down in his chambers earlier this week with partner John Hadden to discuss his legal and judicial career, the evolution of the legal profession, and much more. Chief Justice Carley, who has served on the Georgia appellate courts since 1979 - first on the Court of Appeals, and since 1993, on the Supreme Court, is the only judge in the history of Georgia to serve as both Chief Judge/Justice and Presiding Judge/Justice on both the Georgia Court of Appeals and Supreme Court of Georgia. He is also active in the High School Mock Trial Program. Chief Justice Carley will retire this summer.

The interview will be published later this summer in the Sidebar, a publication of the American Association for Justice. Justice Carley was a member of the organization, then known as the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, when he was a practicing attorney.
