The War Council Advisory Panel was an advisory body set up by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine during the Clone Wars to help coordinate the war effort both in terms of the military and in the Galactic Senate.

The Advisory Panel answered directly to the Chancellor, and was created along with many new security measures—such as the Homeworld Security Command—Palpatine felt it necessary to implement in wartime. The War Council Advisory Panel was responsible for the deployment of a number of clone specialists, including the elite Shock Troopers who patrolled the streets of Coruscant. Many Senators became frustrated with the Advisory Panel, as they were often forced to put their personal convictions on hold in favor of ratifying any legislation that would increase the Chancellor's power.
