Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts may be primarily known for it advocacy for merit selection of judges. Lesser is known for its many other important activities, such as:

1. Participation in continuing legal education programs related to judicial independence and ethics
2. Involvement in a challenge to federal campaign finance laws
3. Efforts to improve the jury system, increase the number and diversity of citizens reporting for jury duty, and enhance the juror experience.
4. Advocacy for a new Family Court facility in Philadelphia.

The the above are only some of PMC's activities to increase public faith in our judicial system.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

when I spent a full day at the jury selection.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage others to support it.
