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
