How to listen to a Land Court event

To listen to a Land Court event via a Public Access Telephone Line, follow these steps:

1. Identify the Judge to whom the case is assigned (or the Recorder for the Tax Session) on the Land Court’s Daily List Report published on the court’s website (see below).

2. Dial-in to that Judge’s session or the Recorder’s Tax Session via the Public Access Telephone Lines (phone numbers listed below) on the date and time of the event. 

3. When prompted, enter the Participant Passcode, including the # symbol on your telephone. 

4. You will be connected to the audio for the event once the event begins. The call will be in “silent-mode,” so you may listen, but will not be heard by the participants or the court during the event. 

Please note that you are prohibited from making any unauthorized recording of the court event. 

If you have difficulty accessing the Public Access Telephone Lines for a Land Court event, you may contact the Recorder’s Office at (617) 788-7470.
