Court News and Announcements
Who we serve
In its media relations role, the Public Information Office (PIO) responds to media inquiries and requests for public information. The PIO participates in and promotes court-specific programs and activities. The office registers members of the media under SJC Rule 1:19, which allows for registered media to bring electronic devices into the courtroom. The PIO also provides the support staff for the Supreme Judicial Court's Judiciary-Media Committee.
In its community relations role, the Public Information Office conducts the annual Judicial Youth Corps program for high school students, and promotes events throughout the court system, including the annual Supreme Judicial Court Student Government Day program, Law Day programs, Supreme Judicial Court Special Sittings in different communities, and many other court-specific events of interest to and open to the public.
