Rules and Procedure Committee

The Rules and Procedure Committee evaluates the performance of the judicial system in and for Philadelphia County and state courts of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, establishes and maintains contact with the Board of Judges and administrative staffs of said courts, and initiates, receives, investigates and considers measures designed for improvement in the functioning of that system. When circumstances warrant or require, the Committee recommends to the Board any action deemed appropriate and desirable. When so directed by the Board, and after due notice to the practicing bar, the Committee studies and thereafter advocates, supports, opposes or otherwise responds to, in the name of the Association, specific changes in or amendments to the rules of court, Pennsylvania Rules of Civil Procedure, the local rules of the Philadelphia County courts, or the application of the rules, and the procedures which follow.
