About the Courts Administration Authority 

We are a diverse organisation, supporting the South Australian Supreme, District and Environment, Resources and Development (ERD) Courts, and the Magistrates, Coroner’s and Youth Courts in Adelaide CBD and several suburban and country locations.

Our aim is to provide excellent services and facilities to the participating courts and court users, in support of the administration of justice.  Our strategic directions and daily activities are guided by our values – Service, Trust, Sustainability, Honesty and Integrity, Courage and Tenacity, Respect and Professionalism.

We currently employ around 800 staff, and 90 members of the judiciary.  Our employees fulfill many interesting roles in a wide range of areas including court administration officers, social workers, psychologists, Aboriginal Justice Officers, judicial support, business analysts, court reporters, sheriff’s officers, and contact centre staff.

In order to maintain public confidence in the integrity of the courts, our employees must exhibit the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct, in the duties we perform and in our interactions with all court users. Confidentiality of private information is an important part of our professional, accountable culture.  The foundations and principles of ethical behaviour and conduct are reemphasised through regular training and development and ensures that the challenges of working in the courts system are positive experiences.
