The Tribunal of Alpha III was a court of justice on Alpha III.

In 2267, after being asked by Captain James T. Kirk what was the point of having books, Attorney-at-Law Samuel T. Cogley responded that books were where the law was. In his opinion, a person would get from a computer the homogenized and pasteurized synthesis of laws, whereas, in books, a person would know the law by reading the original concepts in their own language and learn the intent of the Humans who had written the laws, from Moses to the Tribunal of Alpha III.
