The Prosecuting Attorneys' Council of Georgia assists attorneys by providing continuing legal education and assisting with legal research.
Prosecutors serve the state's interest in criminal proceedings. District Attorneys and Solicitors-General are elected officials, who are part of the judicial branch of Georgia's government. They, along with their assistants, prosecute criminal cases in the state.
The council does prosecute cases when there is a conflict of interest and the District Attorney or Solicitor-General's office cannot prosecute the case.
