How does the Pennsylvania court system work?
Pennsylvania's unified judicial system is one of the nation's oldest, and consists of the supreme court, two intermediate appellate courts, and a large number of lower courts. Information about Pennsylvania's state courts, their judges, and their rules and procedures, as well as public access to opinions and docket sheets, is freely available via the unified judicial system's web portal.
