Education & Outreach

Modern Courts organizes forums and panel discussions designed to educate the public about pressing court-related issues. In the past, Modern Courts has sponsored programs on domestic violence cases in the courts, the need to increase the fees paid to assigned counsel in the Criminal and Family Court, and the movement to reform the Rockefeller Drug laws.
