Commission for Justice Initiatives in Pennsylvania

In May 2004, at the request and with the support of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, then Pennsylvania Bar Association President Michael H. Reed established the Commission for Justice Initiatives in Pennsylvania. Guided by the basic tenet that the justice system needs to be responsive to the expectations and needs of the communities it serves, the commission identifies, develops and recommends the implementation of programs and practices designed to improve the administration of justice in Pennsylvania, educate the public about justice and the judicial system, and enhance the public�s trust and confidence in Pennsylvania�s justice system.
