In one hour, see how the Pennsylvania Supreme Court further protects Personal Identifiable Information (PII) with the new Public Access Policy of the Unified Judicial System of Pennsylvania. The policy goes into effect January 8, 2018, and applies to all court records, including Orphans’ Court documents and civil, family, and criminal matters in appellate and trial courts. Review the new policy and learn what you must do to fulfill its requirements.

The new policy:

  • specifies the types of information to be safeguarded from public view;
  • requires lawyers to redact confidential and sensitive information in court-filed documents;
  • creates uniform standards specifying how trial and appellate courts respond to requests from the public for case records; and
  • specifies the maximum fees that a court may charge for copying records.
