The Kansas Judicial Council has the statutory authority to prescribe many of the forms used in legal proceedings in Kansas district courts. The Council initiates projects which are assigned by the Legislature and requested by the Supreme Court. One of those projects is the provision of free legal forms.
The Kansas Judicial Branch is the branch of government that oversees the courts. It relies on the Kansas Judicial Council to prescribe and provide most of the forms available, but it also provides a handful of forms that the Council does not.
