The Statutes of Alpha III are a set of ancient legal documents that speak of certain rights, including:

  • right to a trial by jury
  • right to representation
  • right of cross examination
  • right to confront witnesses

They were penned by the Tribunal of the planet Alpha III.

Samuel T. Cogley cited the Statues in the 2267 court martial of Captain James T. Kirk. (TOS: "Court Martial")

According to Star Trek Maps (pg. 22), the Statutes of Alpha III was loosely based on Plato's Republic, as a legal document to establish an independent star system.
