Mission & Vision


PMC aspires to create the conditions for a statewide judicial system in which all Pennsylvanians come to our courts, at all levels, whether as litigants, witnesses, jurors or lawyers, with knowledge of the judicial system and their roles in it and the confidence that they will be treated fairly and with respect.


PMC functions as a court watchdog, identifying and speaking out on issues that impact the public's confidence in our courts, and then working proactively, constructively and cooperatively to reform and modernize the judiciary. We serve as a highly respected information hub for the public, policymakers, the legal community, the courts and the media. And we are a champion of the elimination of bias in Pennsylvanians courts in all its forms.
