Judge Karen E. Beyers: Professional Background and Legal Expertise

Gwinnett County Superior Court, Department Division 5

Biography

The Hon. Karen E. Beyers is a judge for the Gwinnett County Superior Court in Georgia. She was elected to the bench on November 4, 2008, and re-elected in 2012, 2016, and 2020.


Beyers has presided over the Mental Health Court Division in Gwinnett County. This court is a collaborative program involving representatives from the court, mental health treatment providers, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and community advocates. The court emphasizes treatment over punishment, targeting offenders whose crimes would not have occurred had it not been for their mental illness.

Beyers earned a bachelor’s degree from Boston University (1986) and a master’s degree from Georgia State University (1990). She then completed a J.D. at the University of Georgia School of Law in 1992.
