What is the State Court Administrative Office (SCAO)?
SCAO is the administrative agency of the Michigan Supreme Court. SCAO is made up of several divisions and is charged with helping Michigan trial courts operate effectively so that they can serve the public. Examples of what SCAO does include collecting data on courts’ caseloads, mediating disputes between courts and their funding units, providing continuing education to judges and court staff, and issuing statewide policies for court operations.
