"Once the Imperial Senate hears of this —"
"There is no one to protest, Princess Leia. The Emperor has abolished the Imperial Senate."
"This is outrageous! Not to mention against the Council Rules of Order. The Emperor has shown contempt for our laws, it's true, but this is going too far, even for him."
―Princess Leia Organa and Darth Vader[src]

The Council Rules of Order were a set of laws pertaining to the Imperial Senate.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Council Rules of Order were mentioned in the July 1998 young-readers story Star Wars Journal: Captive to Evil, written by Jude Watson.
