Access to the Courts

Access to the Courts.

There is a very insightful article in the latest edition of the Philadelphia Bar Association about the lack of access to the courts. Unlike most of the surrounding counties, in Philadelphia only the litigants and their attornies are permitted into the courtroom.

Part of this has to do with the antiquated building. The space is very limited and the building was once a department store ..... and for a time, I believe it was the site of Philadelphia Community College.

But what gets lost when the courts are not open is trust.
